Our beautiful neighbor to the north, Canada, has several large Amish settlements. The largest is near Kitchener, Ontario,but there are other sizable ones at Milverton, Aylmer, and Lindsay, Ontario. There are Amish communities now on the Canadian Plains and the Maritimes. So, in Canada, like the United States, the Amish are spreading their wings. Canadian Amish cooking is quite similar to that in the united states, but they have picked up on local favorites like poutine (fries smothered in gravy) and Tim Horton's doughnuts. So, in celebration of everything Canadian, here are 5 Canadian recipes from the Amish365 archives:
BUTTER TART MUFFINS: this is a fun twist on a quintessential Canadian recipe from Canadian reader, Penny. You can click here for this recipe twist and for an Amish Butter Tarts recipe from a Canadian Amish woman.
ACADIAN CHICKEN STEW: Okay, not Amish per se, but favorite recipe in New Brunswick (and neighboring northern Maine)
NO-MESS AMISH CARAMEL PIE: a recipe I first became acquainted with in the Amish settlement of Aylmer, Ontario.
