About Amish Recipe Box

Growing up in Amish Country, Indiana, I’ve enjoyed the opportunity of making many Amish friends. I have great memories of
Amish home cooked meals and gatherings. For several years I owned a passenger van that I used to transport Amish family’s all over the country. Taking them
as far south as Florida and north to “Rice lake’ in Canada. One trip to Canada that I’ll never forget was for a 1 week fishing trip on Rice lake. I had 12
Amish passengers. After 6 days of almost non-stop fishing, we came back to Indiana with 13,500 Bluegill, ready for the fryer!

With Amish Acres and Shipshewana, both within 20 minutes, there are always interesting things to do around here!
On my Amish Haystack recipe page you’ll find a video of me enjoying a Haystack supper / fundraiser in Goshen, Indiana!

Many of these Amish Recipes have been passed down from several generations of Amish women, and many of them are from
Amish cookbooks written by an Amish lady in Lagrange Indiana, Mrs. Clayton (Louise) Lambright. Her husband,
Clayton has a furniture shop on their farm. Clayton, along with the other Amish craftsmen build some of the
high quality solid wood furniture known to come out of Amish shops.

I’m sure you will enjoy cooking and eating from the authentic Amish Recipes on this website.
Please remember, the Amish people often add a pinch here or a pinch there and cook from memory and habit, making it hard to put some of these Amish
recipes in writing.
