Description: The kitchen is very much the heart of the Amish home, for not only is it the warmest room in the house, it is also the place where the children do their homework of an evening, where matters of importance are discussed, and where, of course, the family eats.
The Amish have always been modest, honest and harmonious people, and their cooking reflects something of these qualities. Meals are wholesome, satisfying and frequently substantial, revealing their German origins, but also harking back to earlier times in America.
With the Amish tradition for self-sufficiency, many of the ingredients used in the Amish kitchen are home-grown. Grains, wheat, barley, rye and com are major crops on Amish farms, while fruit and vegetables are primarily cultivated for the family's consumption, either fresh or preserved.
Amish Country Cooking features a balanced selection of delicious Amish recipes that bring the taste of the farmhouse into your home. Adapted for the convenience of the modem kitchen, these satisfying recipes are presented in an easy-to-follow manner that offers all the homeliness of Amish cooking without any of the inconvenience.
