About the tour

Did you know The Amish have their own newspaper called The Budget? They actually keep track of news from other Amish all over the United States and World! I'll share some interesting news stories happening in Amish Country. We'll also make Amish Potato Donuts! Mrs. Byler’s Glazed Donuts 2 cups mashed potatoes ½ cup butter ½ cup margarine 1 cup sugar 1-quart whole milk, scalded 3 packages dry yeast ¾ cup lukewarm water 3 cups flour 2 eggs, beaten 1 tablespoon salt Combine mashed potatoes, butter margarine, and sugar. Add scalded milk. Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water. When yeast has begun to work, add to the mashed potato mixture. Add half the flour and let set until it sponges. Add eggs and salt, then add the remainder of flour and mix well. Let set until double in bulk. Roll out and cut out donuts. Let set again until double in bulk. Fry in hot shortening at 375 degrees until golden brown. Sherry Gore, Pinecraft, Florida (from Simply Delicious Amish Cooking)
