The Amish people are renowned for their rich agricultural heritage, strong community spirit, and good old-fashioned, stick-to-your-ribs comfort food. This treasury of beloved recipes expresses their close connection to the land and reliance on fresh, natural ingredients.
The Amish Community Cookbook offers an endless array of traditional appetizers, soups, salads, main dishes, casseroles, breads, and desserts. Beyond the delicious, hearty taste, this is food that offers something to nourish the soul. One taste and you'll see why these recipes have been bringing families and communities together at the table for generations.
I have borrowed this cookbook so many times from the library that I finally bought my own copy. And while I love the simple but oh-so-delicious recipes that are family and church potluck friendly, I also love the beautiful layout and all the extras that make this the kind of book I just want to pore over.
Gorgeous illustrations -- and not just of food but of the Amish life style provide a fetching backdrop to oodles of recipes. Like this:
And then there's the Amish proverbs that never cease to put a smile on my face. Like this:
And there are tons of handy cooking tips, the kind your grandma might have shared with you but you never paid attention and now you're wishing your remembered -- things like: "A way to make lettuce or celery crisp again is to place it in a pot of cold water with slices of raw potato." Who knew????? Plus there are inserts that share some of the Amish culture. Not to mention nearly 200 pages of recipes...including Whoopie pies and Haystacks...which I've read about in countless Amish stories. This is definitely a cookbook I'll be referring to again and again.
