Ah, the lowly skillet. It’s a rather unglamorous kitchen utensil, but it’s also a must-have. I think anyone who moves out into their first apartment comes with at least a skillet. Among the Amish, cast iron used to be king. But as time went by stainless steel grew in popularity (there were some really persuasive peddlers of pots and pans that made inroads among the Amish some 30 – 40 years ago). But lately cast iron has begun, again, gaining favor among the Amish. So in tribute to this ubiquitous kitchen item, here are six skillet recipes from Amish homes that could become favorites in yours:
