What We Ate: {Amish Peanut Butter}

Once upon a time, Mike's brother and his family lived in Indiana. And once upon a time, we had the opportunity to go and visit. If you've never been to Indiana, you should probably go. There is a quaintness about it that is adorable and it's so beautiful and green.

 Anyway, while the boys went to the Notre Dame football game my sisinlaw, niece and I went to Shipsheawana. Yes, you guessed it. We went to Amish country. Which is another experience that y'all should be adding to your bucket lists. This town was adorable. We had a great time wandering the shops and purchasing some of the homemade goodies.

{Mom, I took this picture for you!}

One of the specialties that we came across, and which forever changed my life was Amish peanut butter. I cannot even explain to you the deliciousness that is Amish peanut butter. It's like candy, sweet and gooey, but with the delicious peanut buttery taste. I walked away with one single jar and a dream that one day I may have the opportunity to purchase more.

When Mike's brother moved, they made some final Indiana special purchases, and you better believe they got me a jar of this peanut butter. I relished every last drop. And then, it was gone again. And unfortunately, I don't live anywhere near Amish country. You can actually buy it online, that's how awesome it is, however at over $5 a jar, I just can't afford the stuff plus the shipping.

And then came the recipe.

My life was again, forever changed.

Now, from what I remember, it doesn't taste exactly the same, but it's close enough to pacify me until my next trip to Amish country.

Amish Peanut Butter

1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup marshmallow creme

Mix all in a bowl until well combined. Store in air-tight container.

{So delicious on a nice thick slice of homemade bread....or on a spoon straight from the jar....}


  1. I'm glad to learn of something to do in Indiana, ya know, for when I go there someday. Also, I want to go to Washington D.C. too. Have you heard the song by Christina Perri called "A Thousand Years"? You should go listen to it right now.

  2. looks soooo good! I will be making this one! Thanks for sharing!!!

  3. Loved looking at the picture with the quilts. Amish quilts are beautiful. And they say that there is one mistake in every Amish quilt because only Gods' creations are perfect.
