Intercourse Heritage Festival, Lancaster Pennsylvania: Part 3. With a recipe from Jean.

The mini car of buggies
Amish teens just having a little fun
Amish girls seem to be  looking in amazement
Why did that ball have to go in on my watch!
Well if no one else is going in, it looks like I'm it!
I knew i smell food
Rooting  for their favorite volley ball player
Hey you knew i had to slip-in at least one car!
Notice the bumper sticker
These Amish teens were pretty good, and seemed to just play for hours.

 Jeans homemade  Apple Dumplings
2 Cups self-rising flour
1/2 Cup apple juice
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 Cup diced apples
2 (46 fluid oz) cans apple juice
1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
In a medium bowl combine flour, 1/2 cup apple juice and cinnamon, stirring until smooth.  Stir in diced apple. Pour all the apple juice into a 4-quart pot with a tight fitting lid.  Bring to a boil over medium heat.  Drop diced apple mixture by soup spoonfuls into boiling juice.  Cover and let boil 20 minutes.  Do not remove lid during cooking.  After 20 minutes, remove dumplings from pan, set aside.  Stir cornstarch into remaining apple juice in pot and cook until thickened.  Serve over dumplings. (May put ice cream, milk or cream on top).  Makes 8 dumplings. Enjoy. Jean

I've created this website out of my own interest in the Amish/Mennonite culture and of living in the country. Its a place for people who are interested in the Amish like myself, and its also a place to share Images of the beautiful country side that is all around me. my name is Richard, and I live very close to an Amish settlement here in Pennsylvania. This site is dedicated to my mother, who had started all of this by taking me as a child to Lancaster,pa from our apartment in the Bronx projects..........THANK YOU MOM............... Richard
