About Amish Recipe Box

I grew up in Amish country and have an admiration for the Amish people and their culture. I’ve enjoyed many Amish home cooked meals and I’m sure you will enjoy cooking and eating from the authentic 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. Many of these 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.
