Review: Amish Friends Harvest Cookbook




        I was attracted to this colorful cookbook by the author (Wanda E. Brunstetter) and by the title. I was hoping to see some new Amish recipes, and I did. There are over 240 recipes. The recipes come from various plain communities through `The Budget` newsletter and several contacts of author Wanda E. Brunstetter. Mary Alice Yoder shares what it is like growing up with a garden.

        The chapters are organized by type of dish. Example: salads, side dish, and main dish, plus several other dishes. There are also recipes to help the gardener deal with diseases and bugs. Giving different recipes for different bugs and/or disease.

        The recipes are easy to read, giving the list of ingredients first and then the directions. Also, the cook will easily find, most - if not all, the ingredients readily available. The table of contents page is well organized. There are three indexes: (1) Index of Contributors, (2) Recipes by Section, and (3) Recipes by Key Ingredients.

        I think any cook would enjoy these recipes and an early teen would enjoy making these with an adult close by.

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of this ARC through Net Galley for my honest review.
