I waited tables for several years at an Amish restaurant. All the cooks and many of the waitresses were Amish. We had to wear dresses with bibbed aprons and our hair up, so I would often be asked if I was Amish. My kids think that is hilarious since well, I’m not Amish, and they have grown up here, very near a busy Amish community and know the obvious differences in the dress of Amish compared to our family. Anyway, the food at this restaurant was delicious! I would always end my shift with a side of mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans all mixed together. YUM! I would top off my mini-meal with the most delicious concoction known as Amish Peanut Butter Spread.
My Better Half bought some for my birthday and I have been savoring it ever since. It’s a bit pricey for my liking and with 6 of us around here it won’t last long. So I searched for a recipe and low and behold…Amish Peanut Butter Spread.
Here’s a yummy recipe or you can print it out here:
Amish Peanut Butter Spread
3 1/2 ounces Marshmallow Cream
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup dark corn syrup
1 cup peanut butter
1/4 teaspoon maple flavoring
Pinch of salt
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix thoroughly.
This is absolutely faboo! It’s great to spread on crackers, toast, homemade bread, rolls, or just stealing a snack on your finger.
It would also make a wonderful Christmas gift, packaged nicely and tied with a pretty bow.
