Okay, time to go on a whirl through the blogosphere and see what people are saying about our Amish and Mennonite friends. There actually was not a ton to share this week, but I’ll jump into what we’ve got:
10 Interesting Amish Foods: Well, this is an interesting post. I went through the list and I’ve eaten about half of them at some point or another. I keep hearing about “cup cheese” but I don’t think I’ve ever tried it. How many of the 10 have you tried? I think number 3, the Amish peanut butter spread, was the first I could say “aha!” I’ve tried it. Click here to see Lydia Glick’s whole list.
Amish Apple Butter Pie: I have to admit this sounds delicious and the photos look great! Apple butter is a staple on Amish farms this time of year, but I had not heard of “apple butter pie” before. I wish the author had given a bit more background about the recipe’s origins, but, it does look and sound tasty! Click here for the recipe.
Zucchini Spice Cake With Browned Butter Frosting: A couple of weeks ago I shared a blog from a talented, young conservative Mennonite blogger who shares a blend of recipes and horse sense with everyone. I couldn’t resist sharing her recipe today, really, the name of he recipe says it all and what it doesn’t say her photos do. And if you still don’t get it, I’ll say it: YUM!!!!!:)
French Perspective: I took French in junior high and high school….six long years of French. Why? Did I ever really think I was going to live in France? If I would have known how my life would have turned out, I think I would have taken German instead, I’d at least have the bare bones basics of being able to converse with the Amish and Mennonites in Pennsylvania German. Anyway, I stumble upon this blog post from a French visitor to the USA. She shares her not always flattering observations of Amish country. Kind of interesting to read a European perspective.
