I am surprised to see an Amish recipe recommend the use of a blender. Other than that the recipe sounds great
Donna John
I hear you, Mary Liz Pack-Kifer ! I thought the same exact thing. Funny thing is, so many Amish recipes do call for blenders or food processors. Guess they're adapted for the electricity-using crowd. :-) I have no doubt that the Amish can make it just as good without these kitchen appliances though.

I have worked with the Amish in central Wisconsin. They have a unique blender powered by a mule. Through a complicated gear based system the mule walks in a circle powering the children will whip the mule to make it move faster if high speed blending is needed.
