Ever wonder what expert gardeners do with their excess produce? Wanda E. Brunstetter's Amish Friends Harvest Cookbook: 200 Recipes for Using and Preserving the Bounty of the Land is full of mouthwatering recipes that will inspire cooks, from inexperienced to professional, to utilize that produce in delicious ways. The recipes have been collected from Amish cooks across the country.
The Amish are known for their simplicity in many things, and most of the recipes in the book are quite simple. The instructions are concise and easy to follow. The book is well-organized, and has beautiful pictures – some of the Amish countryside, and some of the finished dishes – that will appeal to almost everyone.
There are several good zucchini recipes, such as a Tex-Mex Summer Squash Casserole which was a hit with my family; there are zucchini main dishes, side dishes, and desserts. The Grape Salad which is a mixture of grapes, bananas, and walnuts with a blue cheese dressing, was quick, easy, and very good. One of the best desserts was Blackberry Pudding Cobbler, which made its own sauce at the bottom of the dish. There are also several yummy apple dishes – the Apple Bars were delicious warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
The bottom line is this: if you have a garden, have a neighbor with a garden, or just like to purchase fruits and vegetables, this is an excellent cookbook for you. None of the recipes are difficult, and there is a good enough variety to satisfy even the most picky eaters
