You know, this is a tough one...how to compile a guide to Amish-themed gifts one can buy from Amazon. But then I thought about it and, no, it's not so tough. I just have to think what I'd like someone to buy me, then this exercise becomes much easier!
AMISH PEACH SALSA: Ah, if someone got me some Amish Buggy brand peach salsa, I'd be over the moon. I mean, this is a good stuff authentically made by an Amish family in Arthur, Illinois. Good stuff. Click here to buy.
AMISH THEMED GIFT BASKET: Man this really is a lot of stuff for $70...an assortment of authentic Amish-made goodies from fudge to apple butter. I mean, geez, I'd be elated with something like this, someone in your family will be also. Click here to take a look.
PEANUT BRITTLE CHEWIES: These LOOK so good....I mean, I've not tasted them, but they are made by the Bread Box Bakery in Shipshewana, Indiana...many tried and true Amish bakers work there so these have my stamp of approval. Click here.
PEACH BUTTER: Can you catch a theme here? I love anything peach.....click here.
AMISH CHURCH PEANUT BUTTER SPREAD: Now, if someone got me this, I'd be hitting the ceiling with excitement...authentic Amish-made church peanut butter spread, slather this on toast, crackers, basically anything. This stuff is amazing! Click here.
AMISH BUTTER PECAN SYRUP: I think I'd use this for my pancakes all the time. Click here.
ELSIE KLINE FARM HOME COOKBOOK: This is a great Amish cookbook, but it doesn't trade off the Amish name. It doesn't say Amish in the title, and I'm not sure it says anywhere that it is an Amish cookbook,but it is written by Elsie Kline. I know Elsie and she is a wonderfully warm and talented Amish cook and this cookbook is a wonderful peek into Amish culinary culture and life. I'd love this book! Click here.
