Wanda E. Brunstetter's Amish Friends Harvest Cookbook
Wanda E. Brunstetter's Amish Friends Harvest Cookbook: over 240 recipes for using and preserving the Bounty of the Land by Wanda E. Brusnstetter. Ohio: Shiloh Run Press, 2016. 223 pages. *****
Wanda states in her introduction that she reached out to "the folks of various plain communities through The Budget newspaper as well as my numerous contacts within the communities of Amish and Mennonites." The result is a lush cookbook of over 240 recipes with gorgeous photographs and "Advice from Amish Gardeners." (the 20 pages of advice make the purchase of this book worthwhile) The recipes are varied with everything from "Carmelized Sweet Potatoes" to "Six Day Ketchup."
I particularly like the "Index by Key Ingredients" in addition to the "Index of Recipes by Section."
Included is a "Reflections on the Amish Family Garden" by Mary Alice Yoder of Topeka, Indiana.
I highly recommend this beautiful cookbook, it will make a perfect gift paired with The Hawaiian Quilt and Amish Quilts: Giftable Inspiration Along with Quilting Tips.
I received a copy to review.
