Reader Tom had sent me 2 sets of Images from his own Amish community in upstate New York, so this is the first of those sets with the second one having some very nice buggy Images and farm scenery from one of New York’s Amish settlements. I decided to add this well done video showing some of what Tom sees driving the back roads of New York’s country side. Richard
Video Of an Amish community in New York State.
There is a Swartzentruber settlement in the Pulaski NY area. This is in Oswego County along the east end of Lake Ontario. These pictures were taken over July 4, 2012.
There are going to be a lot of tomatoes coming off this field.
I find it difficult to meet and engage Swartzentrubers in conversations so I only know what I see in this area. In more progressive areas it is easier to talk to folks.
Tom explains that compared to Amish homes in Lancaster Pa, most of the homes in New York State are much less fancy and very simple like in this picture.
A real Image of an Amish buggy from myself in Lebanon,Pa that I made into a stencil using photo editing as well.

Simmer chicken in salted water slowly until it is cooked tender. Remove chicken and strain broth. Add corn to broth and bring to a boil. Cut pieces of chicken and celery into bite-size pieces, and add to broth along with onion. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes.
Five to 10 minutes before serving, add hardboiled egg and rivels made by mixing 1 cup flour, 1/4 cup milk and 1 egg with a fork until the dough is the size of peas. Simmer for 5 minutes. Recipe from http://www.Recipegoldmine.
