Reviews - What do customers think about Cookbook From Amish Kitchens: Jams (Cookbooks from Amish Kitchens)?
The definition of "Old-Fashioned"... Sep 4, 2008
I have all of these adorable little 'Cook Books from Amish Kitchens', and have really enjoyed them. The are very small and simple... the complete opposite of a coffee-table/display-style cookbooks we see most often today. This is a thin pamphlet with matte paper and does not include interior photos of any recipes (excluding the cover). The text is in a handwritten-style font and clearly explained. The recipes are very homey with basic ingredients and techniques; nothing fancy. Simple, delicious recipes in a simple, small booklet. RECOMMENDED.
Fun small book Apr 16, 2002
I have to disagree with the previous review. Growing up in PA Dutch Country and spending 42 years there, more than 30 of them cooking these foods, I think this book is a fair representation. Lots of PA Dutch recipes use commercial mayonnaise and Jello (look in any amish/pa dutch/mennonite cookbook and you'll find salads made with Jello). We're not living in the dark ages anymore! Pineapples are available in almost every grocery store and the amish DO have refrigeration. All in all, I'd say this book was worth the money.
A disappointment Jul 31, 2001
Hard to believe this collection in 32 pages is really based on Amish ways. While I am not Amish and don't know a whole lot about their goings on, I find it hard to believe Pineapples (required in at least a couple recipes) grow in Ohio/Pennsylvania (or is their an Amish family living in Hawaii?). Some recipes called for orange and Strawberry jello, commercially prepared mayonaise, and a freezer (to store pickles in). This leads me to think the authors know less than I do about the Amish.
Excellent small jam book Jun 25, 2000
The bulk of the jams in the book are simple and quick( relatively) to prepare.
The directions are easy to follow and written at the level any begineer cook could follow. Most of the ingredients are easy to find (and you'd have most on hand probably if you were making Jam anyway).
