Amish Recipes and Remedies -new edition-
By Emma Byr
The Amish believe that God put all man's needs in plants and that man's job is to learn how to use them for food and medicine. Emma Byler, an old order Amish woman was widowed at age 33 with 10 children to feed and no money. She found it a necessity to make do with what was on hand. Throughout her life, she jotted down the remedies, stories, and recipes that she valued and stored them in a shoe box. When Dr. Peter Gail, an anthropologist doing research on herbal remedies, came across Emma Byler (now in her 70's) and her shoebox, he realized what a treasure was stored there. He helped Emma put these into book form in her own words. In the book, she shares recipes for homemade household products, nutritious foods, and an extensive list of home remedies. The remedies were learned from her father, who in turn was taught them by a neighboring Indian. Emma also shares the ideas, wisdom, and best of all, the marvelous sense of humor, that brought her a rich and rewarding life. Don't miss this delightful and thought-provoking look at a simpler way of life.
