    I don’t know what they are. Looks like one has peanut butter as an ingredient and one maybe cheese. Not sure about bright yellow one. Maybe some kind of mustard?

    The one on the right looks like the peanut butter/marshmallow spread. The top one looks like a cheese spread and the yellow one at the bottom, I have no idea.

    3 Amish Spreads

    Peanut Butter
    Cheese Spread
    must be the yellow one is egg salad, but rather runny? Never had corn spread that runny either

    Top: Schmierkase (spreadable cheese)
    Right: Amish church peanut butter spread
    Left: It looks like corn. Would it be Kumquat Jam? Just a corny guess.

    I tried to magnify the note to look for clues but I couldn’t read it.

    Names of 3 Amish spreads

    One of them must be peanut butter. The others I do not know. Maybe some kind of cheers spread. Are you going to take the suspense out of all of us and let us know what they really are. Please……….

      Sorry Ellen, answers coming soon 🙂 Just to give later-in-the-day readers a chance to have a look. Some good guessing going on here.

    I know two of the spreads

    Peanut Butter Spread (or Schmear)
    Apple Butter

    The yellow, lumpy one has me baffled. Can’t wait to find out
    what it is.

    for the foodies

    When you announce the correct guess, would it be possible to include a recipe for the correct spread, for those who are inclined to try their hand at making up some.

      Shom in addition to the ingredients I’ve just shared in the post above, the Illinois reader shares a recipe that seems close to this spread: http://cottagehomestead.blogspot.com/2009/09/amish-bread-and-egg-salad-recipe.html

    My favorite thing about the whole photograph is the note. The note-writer appears to have torn off the “clean” bottom half of paper to use for a note. How authentically Amish!!

    Thank you Erik. I wondered what they were. My guesses were way off. Really enjoyed this.

    I missed this yesterday, but wouldn’t have guessed the egg one (cheese and peanut butter/marshmallow, yes).

    Beautiful handwriting—very feminine…something you don’t see often enough these days, with cursive writing no longer being taught in many schools. I remember my classmates and I (all girl school) practicing to “perfect” our signature. I’d hate to see that “skill” (“art”?) fall by the wayside because of computers/technology.
