Thanks to the practicality of the Amish way of life most of their recipes tend to be simple, straight from the garden, natural goods. They have deep agricultural backgrounds where farming and gardening are a way of life. Obviously there really is something to growing your own food, not only is it really budget-friendly, it’s about the healthiest one can eat.
But alas, that’s not an option for all of us, we’ll have to rely on our local farmer’s markets, road-side stands and Whole Foods supermarkets. I know it’s not always realistic for everyone to eat organic and natural goods all the time, but we can certainly do our best. One great way to get started is by trying out some delicious, comforting and simple Amish Recipes.
I’ve noticed a popularity amongst our readers with Amish dishes and thought it would be fun to round-up some of our best Amish Recipes for our Meal Planner newsletter which is going out this Saturday. To get a sneak peak of some of those I featured, I’ve listed a few popular ones below (but if you want to receive the entire issue, just sign up for our newsletter here):
Probably the most recognized and requested, you’ll adore making and sharing this Amazing Amish Friendship Bread. See the bottom of the recipe for the bread starter recipe.
Fill up on and feed the whole family with this easy Amish Six Layer Dinner. Very budget friendly and a comfort dish for sure.
A meal can’t be complete without some dessert so this Amish Sugar Pie is the perfect finish. Make your own crust to make this even more authentic.
Another comfort dish and perfect for warming you up on a cold day is this Amish-Style Chicken and Corn Soup.
For more delicious recipes be sure to check out our friends at Amish Recipes Blog, they’ve got a wonderful collection of Amish dishes. Like these Potato Puffs, simple and really back to basics here, and sure to taste amazing. Or maybe check out some Amish Corn Fritters over at this nice collection of recipes from AmishRecipes.net.
Well I wish everyone luck in any adventures they have in Amish cooking. I’d love to hear about how your recipes turned out or if you have any of your own Amish Recipes!
Have a great weekend.
