    Love the peanut butter spread! When I had the pleasure of joining in an Amish after-church meal, the ladies there mixed the peanut butter spread with a cheese spread on bread. I thought that was sort of an unusual mixture. But I gave it a try and it wasn’t bad!

    I enjoyed reading about the Amish Vegemite, only because I am an Aussie, I was curious. I am always willing to try something new. Hey, we do not eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches here, but I tried it and have fallen ‘in love’ with them and what a great, easy, tasty snack. I will have to try this Amish ‘Vegemite’. For those readers that have never tasted the true Aussie ‘Vegemite’, well, it tastes nothing like peanut butter. It infact is a lot darker in colour than this Amish Vegemite, infact, it is almost black and very salty, made from yeast extract and one of the world’s richest sources of vitamin B. No, you would not try to mix it with peanut butter. I think this version mixed with corn syrup and marshmallow cream must be really tasty. This is one I must try.

    My husband is addicted to the peanut butter spread. We get a couple of jars each time we eat at The Blue Gate in shipshewana.

    I like to warm it up a bit, then use it as ice cream topping!

    Wow! I didn’t realise that Amish peanut butter was so sugary, Kevin. As I can’t have any sugar anymore, this is definitely off limits for me now:( But I can still enjoy our Aussie vegemite, which is definitely best sparingly applied to fresh warm buttered toast, in my opinion. I’ve noticed a lot of Amish recipes have sugar – do you know whether there are a diebetic/sugar free versions of Amish favourites, Kevin? You might have covered this in one of your previous books perhaps?

    Sorry, that should read “diabetic”, not “diebetic”.

    I have often wondered about the peanut butter spread. I read a lot of Amish fiction and it is often mentioned. Thank you ladies for your helpful comments.
