The Amish are an intriguing group of people. They are infamous for their wisdom and simple lifestyle.

      “without canning instructions they’re useless” To this, I say, you should skip the pictures until after you have read every word on the page… such as “Check the National Center for Home Food Preservation website for exact times for these recipes.”

      Once you check with the nchfp site, which is an edu subdomain of the uga (not sure if I can post the direct link, but it’s really easy to find), then you’ll know that some of these require pressure canning, which is fine, since generally speaking a lot of Amish actually pressure can too. MOST Amish drive cars and live in homes with electricity too, it’s only the older orders and sects who do not.

        The Amish may pressure can but real Amish do not drive or are aloud to have a drivers license. That is why they hire a driver if they want to go further than horse and buggy distance, About 10 miles from home. your information about Amish driving cars is wrong. They do not drive cars. Some Mennonites drive but that is not the same as Amish. Amish children are raised in an Amish home but are not members of the church until they decide to join as their own personal preference. This usually happens when they are teens. Until they actually join the Amish church they sometimes have a drivers license. At the time they decide to join the Amish church to live the Amish way of life they surrender their drivers license. FACT!

    The recipes need to be rechecked. One recipe calls for lemons then tells you to add limes not lemons. An other one calls for 1tes. sugar but tells you to add 3/4 cup sugar. Plus without proper canning instructions people coould die or at the very least get extremely ill. An example of this is boiling jars of meatloaf. They must be pressure canned not boiled.

        “Amish use water bath for everything 3 hours including meat”… blah blah blah. Which group of Amish did you leave? None? Yeah, that’s what I thought!

        The Amish are a very large group of Christians with many different orders and sects. No two sects are identical. No two communities are even identical. This is because they are mostly ran by a small group of elders. As a whole they don’t all do any one thing accept claim to be Christian. Many of the old order shouldn’t even make that claim any more with how little they read the book or worship!

        Many Amish today also use electricity and I doubt you could even point them out from a crowd, like the Beachy Amish as a single example.

        To simply refer to them all under a single name and to pretend that they all do things the same way is just a window into your ignorance about them. So ignorant about the people and yet at the same time you attempt to share how they process food (which is incorrect for how many communities do it) and I suspect you place them on a pedestal in your mind.

      Their use of ‘infamous’ seems very fitting when they say it’s for their wisdom and simple lifestyle. While many of the various kinds of Amish would be good people based on my personal judgement, the opposite is also true. I dare say that I would consider more of them to be bad people than good people. The oldest orders of Amish are far too wrapped up in tradition and don’t actually read and obey the Bible enough for me to consider them to be good people. Anyone who refuses to use sliding doors or windows and instead uses openings covered with roll-up cloth or leather simply and strictly due to tradition is a fool, in my opinion. There is NO SCRIPTURE that calls for this. It’s an example of the corruption of the religion.

    Loads of sugar, for sure.

    And that canned meat recipe should not be hot water bathed – it should be pressure canned.

    As for wisdom, etc… Around here, most of the Amish look down on us English, although they aren’t above asking for rides in our cars. To be sure, there are some exceptions, but most of them are sure that the rest of us are going to hell, and they are very smug about it.

        Stevia will work for the sweet taste, it will not help to preserve and part of the reason for the sugar levels being as high as they are is to help preserve things. Stevia is also considered to not be ferment-able, which doesn’t matter in this context but is important to remember for other uses.

      “If you can do better get your own website and recipes and move along.” No. It is all of our responsibilities to call out bad advice when we see it. When it comes to bad methods for preserving food, it can be a difficult task to know if you are doing it right or not due to the time between the canning process, the consumption of the food and the point where someone accepts that they are sick, let along accepting that it’s from food poisoning.

      If the web site owner doesn’t want comments, they can disable them.

      “They have been water bath canning for centuries” So what?! They have also been getting sick from it for centuries. They also have the highest rates of birth defects from inbreeding too. Slavery went on for centuries, you must be OK with slavery too then. Just because they are Amish doesn’t mean they are correct. Wow! There are so many sects of Amish because the oldest orders are too corrupt and choose to be more faithful to traditions than to the Bible. I suspect you know very, very little about the Amish as a whole.

      For pints of the tomato ketchup, hot water bath can them for 10+ minutes. It’s only hot water bath though, so after 10 minutes not much more is actually happening. With pressure canning, after an hour there isn’t much more happening either.

      Note: No one has been canning tomato ketchup for more than about 200 years… since it didn’t really exist before that… but hey, don’t let factual information get in the way of having fun.

      “Thank you for your opinions folks.” Your welcome, Mr or Mrs or Ms Anonymous.
      ” you want less sugar, use less sugar. Alter the recipe to your liking.” That right there is terrible advice. Sugar is a preservative. The amounts being used are not by accident or simply to make it taste sweet. This is a well known thing.
      “Use a pressure canner if you want. ” You mean, if you want to not get sick? Will do! I can stand on the shoulders of many scientists from many different countries who came to the exact same conclusions and where it was demonstrable and repeatable!
      “These types of recipes are exactly how my mother” blah blah blah. These “types” of recipes… lol. You can’t even claim they are the same, only the same “type”. What does that even mean?!
      “The oldest is 88 and the youngest in his sixties” And? That’s only 2 of your alleged 7… history is pretty clear and doesn’t match your anecdotal tales that I dare call lies.
      You post as though many different countries have not come to the same conclusions, as though many people have not dies or become seriously ill from food poisoning. It’s very childish.

      Do you mean a Number 3 can or a number 10 can or something else? My parents were also farmers, but I am having some trouble understanding what you wrote… of course, since this is an ‘Anonymous’; account, I don’t guess I’ll get a reply either. As far as respecting the Amish… some, maybe, on an individual basis. I sure hope you don’t just respect people based on their religion alone. Their religion is simply a claim, you can’t know that they are good people based on that alone. To respect them based on a single claim of their is foolish. “you are not going to have power neither” Most, by count, Amish DO use electricity which I think you mean by saying ‘power’. It’s only the older orders who do not. I feel like most of the people who comment on this page have little to no clue what the Amish actually are.

      There are SO MANY other resources that you can easily find. Whatever State you are in (assuming you are in the USA), your State University probably has an extension office that can help with detailed instructions on how to preserve food that easily grows in your area.

      This is a great place to start (I sure hope the link isn’t blocked) https://www.nifa.usda.gov/about-nifa/blogs/usdas-complete-guide-home-canning

      I suggest you stay as far away from anything related to ‘rebel canning’ as possible too.

      Also, learn and become otherwise familiar with the symptoms of Gastroenteritis.
