Time for our weekly whirl into the world's largest marketplace for anything and everything Amish. Some interesting and tasty stuff this week.
CINNAMON ROLLS AND MIXING BOWLS: This is David Miller's follow-up to his excellent book Apple Pie and Apron Strings. Many of the current crop of Amish cookbooks are ones I just find uninspiring and lacking in cultural authenticity, but Miller's books cull recipes directly from Amish kitchens so what you get is the real deal. This is the Amazon text description: Something’s cooking in all those Amish farmhouses across the USA. Discover what, right here in Cinnamon Rolls and Mixing Bowls ...888 flavor-popping recipes guaranteed to whet your appetite. And check out the all-new Holidays & Special Occasions, created by housewives countrywide who graciously present the rest of us with a series of complete meals and menu ideas. Each recipe was handwritten, ingredient by ingredient, by these housewives themselves. Here are the results! Sequel to Apple Pie and Apron Strings To order this book, click here.
MRS. MILLER'S BANANA JAM: Hmmmm, I've never seen "banana jam" before but, heck, why not? I'm imagining a "peanut butter and banana jam" sandwich and "Elvis sandwich", sounds really good to me....anyone up for trying "banana jam", if so, click here.
TROYER'S BACKCOUNTRY CINNAMON PUFFS TREAT: Wow, I wish I didn't know about these. This snack from Troyer Cheese just sounds and looks amazing, one of these days I'll have to get some of these....if it sounds good to you, click here.
AMISH COUNTRY COOKBOOK, VOL 1: I have this book, good, good book, one of the best of the end of the 60s and 70s " Amish cookbook heyday." I don't have much to add, the book speaks for itself, click here.
YODER'S GOOD HEALTH TONIC: Um, sorry, I can't vouch for this and I almost hesitated to post this but as long as I say "buyer beware" I guess that is okay. You know, I'm not sure what to think on something like this. I like to keep an open mind on stuff like this and this reminds of a homemade "health tonic" that I stumbled upon at an Amish home in Glenarm, Ontario. But...yeah, I don't know what to think, you can decide. Click here.
