The Amish are no different than anyone else when it comes to seasonal food traditions. Like most people, cranberries show up on Amish tables about once a year: Thanksgiving.
This is a popular cranberry salad that the Amish Cook included in her column and it earned rave reviews from recipe tester Barbara.
Here is what Barbara had to say:
"Oh my heavens this is a fabulous cranberry salad. Wow, this is an an amazing recipe, not too sweet, not too tart. Mr had for his dessert after supper tonight. "
Also, remember to drain the crushed pineapple before mixing with the orange, apple, and cranberries that have been ground up.
