DON’T FORGET! Order Amish sorghum molasses, our Amish Buggy sponsored product of the week. This is some GOOD stuff, really is….I wish I had a plate of biscuits now to dip it in. Buy from Amazon here.
Blueberries are a staple in Amish kitchens as the summer progresses. Many Amish either grow their own or they frequent u-pick patches to get their blueberry supply. This super berry is then home-canned (although more progressive Amish with freezers are preserving food that way more and more) and enjoyed year-round. Amish cooks press blueberries into coffeecakes, muffins, breads, rolls, and pies. Some even blend it into juices. The blueberry packs a punch of flavor and versatility. Apparently, by the way, blueberry is a tough crop to make money on this year with plummeting prices. See this article from the Bangor, Maine newspaper.
