    Canning Jars Needed


    I am wanting to purchase clear 16 oz mason jars and lids in bulk (No name brand) at a reasonable price. My question is, “Does the Amish community sell jars and lids to the public?” And if so, do you have any suggestion on where I can find this source?

    Thank You!

    Amish cook / quilts (February 26th, 2015 at 13:41)

    Amish cook / quilts

    The original Amish Cook, Elizabeth Coblentz, was an old irder amish housewife who published a recipe column for years. Her daughter Lovina Eicher has taken it over since Elizabeth’s death. The recipes have been preserved in several books. I have noticed that the amish may use processed prepackaged ingredients, and many recipes may not be the epidome of healthy cooking. Her publisher has written about the difficulties of working with an author who does not have a phone or fax.

    Virtually all quilt patterns are used by the amish. The difference is in the fabrics. They piece not applique. They use solid colors, jewel tones. The patches are sewn by hand or treadle machine, with hand quilting.

    Hope this helps.
