Treasured Amish and Mennonite Recipes: Cookbook Review

Treasured Amish and Mennonite Recipes: 627 Delicious, Down-to-Earth Recipes from Authentic Country Kitchens
Author: Mennonite Central Committee

If you love simple, down-to-earth cooking, then this is the cookbook for you. These recipes are the best of the best from the two original volumes which have been out of print for years.

There is a “Brief History of the Amish and Mennonites” section for those interested in learning more about the cultures, as well as a wonderful
Foreward that explains the purpose of the Mennonite Central Committee and their relief work.

Sprinkled through the pages are tips, interesting facts, stories, and gorgeous photos, not of any of the recipes but of this way of life.

You will find a Table of Contents as well as an expanded index. The recipes are organized into 14 categories from Main dishes and Casseroles, Side Dishes and Vegetables, Desserts and Sweets to Grandma's Remedies and Soap Making. . You will also find some recipes for European dishes (Apple Moos-yum!) and for crowds of 200 (Threshers Dinner, Funeral, Barn Raising Dinner). The recipes are easy to understand and the items can be found in your pantry or grocery store.

This is truly a unique cookbook and I am delighted to add it to my shelf of favorites in my kitchen.

I received a free copy of this book from Fox Chapel Publishing Company for me to review.

  1. Actually, the book itself looks like a treasure. I have one Mennonite, and one Amish cookbook, both of which I like very much. And who can resist another cookbook. :)
