    Bupli vs Bubbaleh

    identical to a traditional & not uncommon Shabbos (Sabbath) “grandmother” dish for Yiddish Jews. It fulfills & adheres to the OT Kosher laws of keeping milk dishes separate from meat dishes. aside, it is delicious & often the first cooking lesson for kinder.

      sort of true

      Tho we have always “known” it to be an Iberian Jewish dish for Shabbat (Ladino vs Yiddish). a standard dish in American South, especially among mestizos, Melungeons etc. & yes, usually the first cooking training for mihas or youngins. & beans being a native Southern veggie, that part is an American addition.

      Amish in Australia someday?

      Maybe it could happen Kate, after many years of Amish in only 2 countries (US and Canada), communities recently emerged in Bolivia and Argentina. Australia would have the appeal of being an English speaking country and an advanced economy…and I don’t know anything about Australian agriculture but I am guessing there could be some interesting opportunities there 🙂

      This source lists 1 Beachy Amish (a related group which uses more technology) congregation in Australia as of 1997: https://gameo.org/index.php?title=Beachy_Amish_Mennonite_Fellowship


      There is also mention of Australia here in this Beachy Amish resource: http://www.beachyam.org/secure/MM2009/ministers2009.htm

      New Zealand

      I wonder the same about New Zealand. Though I guess the main reason is that when the first Amish and Mennonite settlers left Europe was before New Zealand was ready to be settled. It would be long way for them to go now, though I believe it would suit them here.
