My Review

This is an amazing recipe collection put together by the Mennonite Central Committee (MCC).  The MCC is an amazing organization and I hope this fabulous cookbook is an excellent fundraiser for them. 

The cookbook starts off with the history of Anabaptists such as the Amish and Mennonites in North America.  It is illustrated with gorgeous photographs.  Mennonite bakers are unsurpassed so it is a delight to find all the recipes in one spot.  Excellent recipes for pickles and relishes.  An excellent addition to anyone's cookbook collection!
