Time for another installment of "Amish Amazon" where we browse through the Amish-themed goodies available on Amazon. As we head into autumn, a bit of a pumpkin theme shows up. This is the time of year that pumpkin begins to grace everything from lattes to milkshakes to cakes. This post does contain affiliate links (which means I get a small percentage when you order something but, geez, it is minuscule...don't get me wrong, anything is nice, so thank you Amazon)
PUMPKIN BUTTER: I might be tempted to dismiss the idea of ordering something like this online, you can probably find pumpkin butter in your local supermarket. BUT, this comes from the Kitchen Kettle, a Lancaster County mainstay for generations. So I'd have to imagine this is a really high quality product. Trying to think what you'd do with it, though, maybe just spread it on toast? Click here to see this beautiful butter!
PUMPKIN WALNUT CAKE: Made by Amish bakers in northern Indiana, I am sure this is a good cake. Problem with ordering any baked good online is that the shipping really clobbers you. Still, I bet it is good. Click here to check this out.
STRAWBERRY PINEAPPLE FRUIT SPREAD: This looks good and sounds intriguing. It's made by Byler's Relish House, so I know you get great quality with them, representative of Plain culture. Check it out here.
LIMBURGER SPREAD: This is another one where I'm just not sure how you are supposed to eat it. I would guess just spread it on some crackers. Limburger is such a stinky cheese....I'm not, though, even sure I've ever eaten it before. A "spread" might be a more palatable way to get the cheese without some of the stink? Anyway, click here to check it out.
CARAMEL CORN: Man, this sounds good....caramel-corn hand-stirred in a copper kettle with real butter and coconut oil. I could probably polish off a couple bags of this stuff. Click here.
