German Mennonite Recipes

Ammonia Cookies - a Christmas favorite


German Sausage - very authentic - the way my ancestors made it years ago

Green Bean Soup

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.
