Reader Diane asked for a recipe for Amish scalloped corn. This is a great summer recipe, but you can eat and enjoy corn year round if you have access to frozen or canned, so here we go:
A reader requested a recipe for SCALLOPED CORN. Enjoy!
Another reader asked for Amish "creamed celery" which is sometimes called "wedding celery." The reader also asked how it is served and I'll give a candid answer here: most Amish meals I've been privileged to partake have featured bowls rather than plates and you just sort of jumble everything together. Your mashed potatoes, corn, meat, mashed potatoes are all going to be swimming together as one giant mash-up meal. So push the wedding celery against whatever else is in your bowl and enjoy! Watch the cook time on the celery, it may not be 20 minutes. I'd do it over medium heat and just monitor it.
- 1 quart finely cut celery
- ½ tsp. salt
- ½ c. sugar
- 2 Tbsp. vinegar
- 1 Tbsp. flour
- ½ to ¾ c. milk
- 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
- Cook celery, salt, sugar and vinegar just until tender.
- Use as little water as possible.
- Make a sauce with the flour and milk and bring to a boil.
- Then stir in mayonnaise or salad dressing.
- Mix with celery.
- Serve hot.
