As an Amish family we did not branch out much when it came to food. Most families tend to stick to potatoes, carrots, bread, starches, and your typical fruits and vegetables that can be grown here in the North East.
Clementines were a treat for us and most of what we ate was canned or out of the garden, so when Mom came home from the super market one day with avocados and a guacamole mix, I thought it looked strange. However, after trying it, we all became fans! Because I rarely have guacamole mix on hand and like to eat as fresh as possible, I recreated the recipe to imitate store bought guacamole and was very happy with the results!

Feel free to pin for later and tag me on Instagram to show off your dinner entree with this guacamole on the side!

    This looks to be a great page to follow. I understand the reference to the Amish cookbooks. That’s how I learned to cook and bake:) If someone is new to baking etc the cookbooks are hard to follow. I grew up in Belleville and my grandma was a Peight .
