With today being CyberMonday I thought it'd be appropriate to do a special food post dedicated to the different Amish edible offerings available on Amazon.
AMISH SMOKIES: I don't like generalizing, but there does seem to be a fondness among the Amish for "smokies"...things like SlimJims, jerkies, any sort of smoked meat available to snack on. So I was kind of excited to see this super-sized pack of "Amish smokies" for sale....wow, that'd keep your supply of chewable meat in check for a long time! Click here to see more.
RASPBERRY BLOSSOM HONEY: I just recently enjoyed a batch of "orange blossom" honey that my parents picked up on their swing through the South and that was delicious, it was honey with just a hint of citrus. Well, I was excited to see this, a raw honey that problem just has the slightest suggestion of raspberry. Click here to see more and to order.
AMISH CARAMEL KETTLE CORN: Man, this looks good. I've developed a real fondness for kettle corn as I have gotten older. I may have to give this a try one of these days. It is made and packaged in Ohio's Amish Country and it looks addictive. Click here to salivate!
EDITOR'S PICK - BYLER'S SWEET PEPPER RELISH: Wow, I was excited to learn about Byler's Relish House. This is an authentic Plain-owned canning operation in Pennsylvania and some of the variety they offer is incredible, from a sweet pepper relish to a good Southern Chow Chow. Check them out here.
AMISH VANILLA BOURBON SYRUP: This sounds amazing, but I can't vouch for it. The place that makes this isn't Amish-owned (not a dealbreaker for me) but they are based in Indiana and specialize in these gourmet craft sauces and I'd have to think that this is an authentic recipe. Not unheard of for Amish cooks to use a little alcohol to flavor something. So this syrup sounds incredible. This is an article that tells more about the place that makes this syrup.
AMISH ROLL BUTTER: I was happy to see this, because Minvera Dairy makes some awesome product and I have had their Amish roll butter before. Here is an article about their butter and the Amish connection. So, ordering butter online? How do they ship it? And would it arrived all chilled and creamy? I guess that is my question...only one way to find out...Click here to order.
