Time for our weekly sojourn through the blogosphere to explore anything and everything Plain. There are some neat items in this week's blogroll.
SHARING THE ROAD IN WISCONSIN: The Badger State's Amish population has been steadily increasing over the past few years. A blog posted a few really neat, picturesque pictures (is that redundant?) from Central Wisconsin. Click here to enjoy.
THE AMISH IN THE WORLD WAR II: As pacifists, the Amish didn't actively fight during World War II, Korea, Vietnam or other items when the draft was active. The Amish served the country in domestic work capacity, but not a lot has been written about it. So this is an interesting post (by a fiction author, but this is non-fiction) giving a fascinating glimpse into Amish life during World War II that was an alternative to fighting.
EASY AMISH APPLE BUTTER: Homemade apple butter is a staple in Amish kitchens. Nothing better than some flavorful apple butter to smear onto a slice of homemade bread. Click here to get a couple of good, easy recipes
DUTCH APPLE PANCAKE: I love studying food history and this is a neat recipe that seems to have a mix of Appalachian and Virginia Mennonite roots. Click here to read more and get a recipe.
