    Hi Kevin,
    Just a question, what is sweet milk?
    I live in South Florida and have never seen sweet milk called for in a recipe.
    Thank you,
    Linda McGhee

      I didn’t ask Sara and can’t reach her immediately, and when I go online to find an answer, I’m seeing some recipes that use the term simply as “whole milk”, others use the term “sweet milk” to mean evaporated milk…so I’m a bit perplexed, anyone else have any ideas?

        Sweet milk is simply another term for whole milk, as opposed to 2%, 1% or buttermilk. At least that’s what I’ve been raised to believe. (Texas)

      Sweet milk is just regular milk….not buttermilk or sour milk.

    I would appreciate it if you could email me the recipe for strawberry bread. I baked it from the original recipe and even printed it. I don’t know what I did with it, probably inadvertently threw it out.

    Sweet milk is just whole milk.

      Thank you, Renita, and others who chimed in…sweet milk=whole milk…I’ll make a note of that next time I have an Amish recipe with sweet milk!

    I don’t know about the strawberry bread but for some reason the sour cream cookie recipe does not print out for me. I have tried different ways and the paper comes out blank except for writing at the top.

    Does Sara have a cookbook and a small store across the driveway from her house?

      It is possible, although Sara Raber is a pretty common name among the Amish. This recipe came from a Sara Raber in Highland County, but it came to me through a couple of other people, so I didnt meet Sara….wish I could be more help
