🥣 Trending Amish Soup
German Baptist Chicken Rice Soup: This soup is amazing for those first cold days of autumn. A bit more about it: This is a recipe for a delicious soup given to me by a German Baptist cook . For newbies here, the German Baptists are a Plain church. Members dress much like the Amish and Mennonites, but embrace more progressive amenities like cars and media. Their cooking style draws heavily upon scratch-made and traditional ways, much like the Amish. Homemade soups like this one are very popular at German Baptist gatherings and kitchens.

Old-Fashioned Molasses Cookies: These always get popular as the holidays creep closer. Check out the recipe.
Green Tomato Pie: Such a delicious pie and with cold air bearing down over much of the USA, the tomato crop will be toast, so harvest green ones and use them for this dessert: This pie reminds me of some of the simple, from-scratch, threadbare cabinet pies that Amish bakers are so skilled at making. Vinegar pie is one that just sounds awful, but it works. It's very good. The green tomato pie is another one. The tomatoes haven't ripened yet so they don't have their true flavor, so you use diced green tomatoes, smother them in sugar and tapioca and you get a creamy, interesting pie. I mean, I can tell you that I was super skeptical when I made the pie Click here for the recipe.
