    How to Cook dishes from the Amish


    The Amish are members of an Anabaptist Christian denomination. They live in many states of the United States (especially Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana), as well as in Canada, are known for pursuing a simple lifestyle, without the use of most modern technologies.

    Amish foods tend to be derived from European traditions, and of course make use of the agricultural produce that the Amish produce. There is also belief derived from Europe that meals should be properly balanced, exemplified by the phrase "seven sweets and seven sours", which comes of custom of laying out seven pickled foods or relishes as accompaniments for evening meals. Some popular Amish recipes and dishes include:
    • Bott boi - A pie containing a stew made from meat (beef, chicken, ham, or game) with egg noodles, potatoes, and other vegetables.

    • Dandelion salad - A salad made from dandelion greens. The dressing is made from bacon, eggs, cream and butter, and is flavored with sugar, salt, vinegar, and paprika.

    • Sauerkraut und speck - Sauerkraut with pork.

    • Schnitz un knepp - Apple slices with dumplings, made from dried apples with eggs, flour, ham and milk.

    • Scrapple - A mush of pork trimmings with cornmeal and flour. It is also sometimes known as "pawn haas" or "pon haus".

    • Souse - Pickled pig's feet.
    Mennonites are also members of an Anabaptist denomination, although they split from the Amish during the 17th century. The largest populations of Mennonites are to be found in the United States and the Democratic Republic of Congo, but there are also Mennonite communities in dozens of other countries as well. Mennonite recipes and dishes include:
    • Bubbat with sausage - Sausages embedded in a cooked dough.

    • Borscht - A soup made from beef, cabbage, potato and tomato. It is flavored with dill.

    • Summer borscht - A variant of the basic borscht recipe, but made with sorrel and garnished with a cold hard-boiled egg.

    • Kielke - Noodles made from flour, eggs and milk. Served with cream gravy, which is made from a mixture of cream, flour and butter.

    • Paska - A sweet bread often eaten at Easter time.

    • Perishky - Soft cookies made with butter, sugar, sour cream, eggs and flour, flavored with lemon juice, and contain jelly.

    • Roll kuchen - A fried dough often eaten on Sunday afternoons.

    • Wareneki - Dumplings filled with fruit, or perhaps cottage cheese. They are served with cream gravy, which is made from a mixture of cream, flour and butter.
