Okay, folks, it is time for YouTube Friday where we explore all the "plain" happenings out there on YouTube. Each week I scour YouTube and bring you the best - and sometimes the silliest - clips from Plain America. Let's dive right in!
KATY'S BROWN BAG APPLE PIE: Wow, is really all I can say to this! This is a confection served at The Amish Door restaurant in Wilmot, Ohio. The video demonstration doesn't give the recipe, but to you pie bakers out there, try it at home: apple pie baked in a paper bag??? The video makes it look like a slice of heaven! Click here to watch a short two minute clip of this mouth-watering sounding pie!
PLAY BALL!! Let's think spring with this video clip. Some day spring WILL arrive. And there's nothing better than stumbling upon an impromptu ball game in Amish country. Volleyball and softball are among the most popular. Check out this softball game played by Old Order Mennonite youth in Ontario, Canada.
PLAY BALL - VOLLEYBALL! This is a great clip from Mount Hope, Ohio - heart of Amish country - of a Sunday night volleyball game. Looks like great fun! Check it out here.
MINI-DOCUMENTARY: If you have a little more time, this is a 13-minute mini-documentary that a grad student made chronicling the Amish migration into New York State. This really is a well-done documentary, too bad it hasn't been viewed more times on YouTube. Click here to watch!!
