Amish food is known for being simple and old-fashioned. When you’re cooking without a lot of new-fangled conveniences, it helps to have really easy recipes. Unless you’re Amish, you probably do have some tools for shortcuts—like your microwave, for example. But even if you make Amish recipes the traditional way, they’re going to come out perfect because they’ve been time-tested.
One of our favorite bloggers, Kevin Williams from The Amish Cook, writes about the Amish life and traditions, including food traditions. From casseroles to potluck favorites, Amish recipes are reliable. We highly recommend reading Kevin’s site, Amish365, if you want to know more about Amish culture.
One of the most fascinating aspects of Amish life is the commitment to tradition. While foodies across the world try to out-do each other with the newest, craziest flavor combinations, Amish recipes have stayed the same for a very long time. They rely on classic flavors and ingredients. Basically, they don’t mess with what works.
