German Mennonite Recipes
Ammonia Cookies - a Christmas favorite
German Sausage - very authentic - the way my ancestors made it years ago
Pfefferneusse - 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.
Recipes I Highly Recommend
Curry Chicken Salad - This is really good
Fruitcake - a big favorite - not like your grandmas
Gingerbread Pancakes - If you like gingerbread, this will knock your socks off. Awesome with lemon sauce.
Pasta with Clam Sauce - A great take off of the Spaghetti Factory item.
Thai Coconut Ice Cream - Absolutely the best coconut ice cream! You do not need an ice cream machine.
Zucchini Relish - I use the overgrown zucchini from my garden. You need 10 cups grated per batch.
Zucchini Salsa - I use the zucchini from my garden. Again, 10 cups needed. Use the tomatos as well.
