    Sounds like quite interesting businesses. I can see where the mental health facilities would be run with much love and care!

    How do you make Red Beet Wine? My Dad used to make it years ago and I make my own fruit wine but not the beet one.

    Hi Katie, I don’t have the answer on that one but maybe someone else does. Amish whom I speak with about drinking wine always stress moderation and the health benefits.

    Michelle I do suspect you are right.

    RED BEET WINE
    3 lb. beets, scrub good, don’t peel
    5 qt. water
    3 lb. sugar
    1 yeast cake
    Cut beets in chunks if they are big. Boil in water until soft. Drain and strain. Mix in sugar, then stir well. When cool, add yeast cake. Let ferment in bottles. Cork when fermenting is finished.

    Am enjoying your book.

    Also received another new book today, hot off the press, New York Amish by Karen M. Johnson-Weiner. That also looks like a very informative book.

    Thanks Andy! And I’m looking forward to reading and posting something on the New York Amish book myself.

    Can you tell me why when the Amish men marry they grow a beard but I believe the Mennonite men do not. Why. Also am I correct in saying that the Mennonites are not as strict in their ways. Although I do know there is Old Order and New Order I live in Ontario and we are getting more Mennonites moving to this area and I think it is great.
