Meals in Amish country during the summer months are highlighted with seasonal garden goodies and fresh meats. Amish cooking is fairly consistent year-round because of home-canning. A can of green beans can be opened in January for a taste of spring and summer fresh, but during the summer and fall, the meals literally can go from garden to table on the same day and there's something extra fresh and special about that. These are some summer lunch photos I enjoyed in an Amish home once along with 5 favorite Amish summer lunch recipes.
Every Amish summer barbecue includes these perfect simple side dishes. Fruits, fresh tomatoes & sliced cheese.
