Food in Ohio

Johnny Chapman a.k.a. Johnny Appleseed, a frontier hero, brought apple seeds with him from Massachusetts in the early 1800 and those seeds he planted are the origin of the many apple trees in Ohio.

Amish peanut butter

Amish peanut butter is a spread for bread rolls. Amish peanut butter can also be purchased from several companies that specialize in Amish foods, but why buy something that is easily made at home? This does make a rather large batch. It stores well in a sealed container, but making a half batch works well too.

Amish stuffing

First make your own broth - Use the the liver, gizzard, neck, and any other parts included with you turkey. Fill a medium pot with water, add the turkey parts, and boil for 15- 20 minutes until the meats are cooked through. Strain the broth. Cut the organ meat into small pieces. (This is optional, but it does add a lot of flavor to the stuffing.) You can get some meat from the neck, but we normally discard it.If you are not making this with a whole bird, use canned broth.
