Amish Country recipes have been passed down through generations. Savor the flavors of home-style meals with friends and family. Fried chicken and other poultry dinners, mashed potatoes and gravy, pot roast and Trail bologna.
Simple but delicious, such traditional foods bring visitors back over and over. Typical dishes reflect the old-world, farm-based and central European origins of the Amish.
Home-baked pies, cookies, whoopee pies and other scrumptious baked goods are familiar treats. Canning, preserving and pickling derive from traditional farm skills that line the shelves of local shops—or watch for an Amish home with goods for sale. Noodle dinners, an immense variety of Swiss and other cheeses, and wonderful chocolate indicate the Swiss heritage of the Amish.
