German Mennonite Recipes
Ammonia Cookies - a Christmas favorite
German Sausage - very authentic - the way my ancestors made it years ago
Pfeffernusse - A true German Mennonite Christmas tradition. There are as many recipes for pfefferneusse as there are Mennonite families - and each thinks theirs is the very best. My family remembrance.
Poertzelki - also known as New Year's Cookies. Sometimes referred to as fritters.
Rull Kuchen - Really good with watermelon
Verenika - This is a Mennonite staple. Very good with German Sausage and onion gravy
Zwiebach - My mother made zwiebach almost every Saturday. Every church pot luck had tons of zwiebach. Great toasted the next day with butter and jam.
