Thought it would be fun to take a look at what we can find Amish on Amazon this week. Some good and interesting stuff through our affiliate links:
TOMATO JAM: This is a curious item which is quite popular in Amish homes. Imagine it being like a spreadable ketchup and perhaps a bit more flavorful. I've heard this stuff is good slathered on grilled cheese or as a side with eggs. And if you are like me and sometimes think a thick slice of tomato is too much on a BLT, tomato jam is a good alternative. You can buy some actual Amish-made tomato jam here. Enjoy!
SWEET PEPPER RELISH: Man, I would think this would be good on a hot or a hamburger. This comes from Byler's Relish House and anything they made is amazing. Click here.
AMISH-MADE PUMPKIN ROLL: Man, this time of year...bring it on...to me, a homemade pumpkin roll, chilled and then sliced...it doesn't get much better than that. You can buy one here.
PUMPKIN NUT BREAD: The pumpkin train rolls on, with this from the Bread Box Bakery in Shipshewana...some good stuff here...click to check it out..
AMISH COOKBOOK: Wow, this is one I'd be tempted to pounce on....this is a rare Amish cookbook from the parents of the Amish children that went to Wes Lykens Valley Amish School in Mifflin Township, PA (the Big Valley area). There are over 700 - yes, 700 - recipes in this cookbook, collected by parents of the students. I'd have to think there are some real gems in this one. Yes, I am sure you'll find the usual assortment of Velveeta soaked dishes, but I bet there are also some authentic, generations-tested recipes passed down that really reflect Amish culture. Look at the book here.
MRS. MILLER'S AMISH COOKBOOK - Holy cow, this looks like a real treasure, but $860.00??? No thanks...but you can take a look at this cookbook here, just don't accidentally click "Buy".
