    Well, Kevin, I do not care for pretty much any kind of bean soup, however husband loves it. So I make plenty of his kinds of soups, put in containers in the freezer, and there you go, instant lunch or dinner for him if I am not around. Thanks so much for posting, he saw and wants!!!

    This is a great soup for a cold, snowy day with some hot homemade cornbread. Thanks for posting! I know what I’m making for dinner tomorrow night. 🙂

    Hello, Kevin. I can’t wait until “Amish Cooks Across America” is available! I think that it is a fantastic idea that a cookbook involve nationwide contributors, especially of the Amish faith. It will be interesting to see how some recipes may vary in different regions. I recently discovered a new business (opening around March in Boardman, Ohio. It is called “The Vallet Marketplace” and will be an indoor marketplace featuring 30 Amish vendors under one roof!!! Do you know of any others like this?

    Great soup recipes, thanks Kevin, but the Chili recipe would not come up ???? Wonder if it happened to anyone else ? All the others did….Can you double check and see if there was a problem ?

    Kevin, I owe ya one. I have never been able to make good fudge, but I tried your Amish No-Cook fudge recipe and couldn’t believe it. It’s delicious, so easy and creamy. We all love it, especially the grandkids.

    The chili soup recipes would not come up. Unfortunately this is an ongoing problem with this site. In fact, it was one of the reasons my local paper cited for discontinuing the column. I used to love this site and column, but now not so much. Please fix the problems with getting the correct links up. Oh , and how about an update on Lovina and her family?

      Valerie – that link is now fixed, four of the five links were fine, but the error on the fourth has been fixed. Your newspaper dropped the column because links on the site are occasionally wrong?

    In my fifty years of searching for the perfect Navy Bean Soup, this Amish recipe is far and above the best! I made the soup yesterday and was so pleased, I was immediately sorry not to have made a double batch!

    Small suggestion: the salt pork IMO should be chopped to LESS than 1/4” cubes (to avoid globs of pork fat on your tongue). Smaller pieces of pork in the soup will render more readily, leaving lovely bits of smoky pork.

      Glad you liked this recipe. Your suggestions make sense. This recipe was sent to me by an elderly Amish lady in Upstate New York, she took the time to write it out in shaky hand, it definitely has a lot of authenticity to it…
