  • Looking for recipes from the Amana Colonies in Iowa
    We ate at the Amana's yesterday on our way home from vacation, and it was some of the BEST food I had ever eaten!

    Their ham was to die for and so was the raspberry cheesecake. Green beans, mashed potatoes, 30 salads, I could go on and on.

    Does anyone have any of their recipes?

    Thanks!

    Man, that sounds good! We will be spending a night at the Amana colonies in Iowas on our way to a wedding in a couple weeks. Can you tell me the name of the restaurant that you ate this delicious food at? Any other recommendations while we are there?
    Sorry I didn't answer your question!
    Thanks,

    We ate at the Ox Yoke? in Middle Amana.

    There's a bunch of little shops there with just about anything you can think of.

    Make sure you go to the woolen mill and they have a brewery and several wineries.

    I use to live close by to all the Amana's! Their food is to die for! You must try the sweet saurkraut! They serve it at the Colony Inn Restaurant! In main Amana.
    The black bread is awesome too!
    When I go home to visit we never miss a chance to go into the Amana's!

    Here are a few I found!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Amana Ox Yoke Rhubarb Custard Pie

    Makes 2 pies.

    10 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb (or
    5 1/4 cups strawberries and 5 1/4 cup rhubarb)
    4 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    9 eggs, beaten
    3/4 cup half-and-half
    3/8 teaspoon salt

    Make crust for 2 pies. Put bottom crust into pans. Sprinkle each crust with 3/4 teaspoon flour. Mix above ingredients and pour into crusts. Bake at 375 degrees F for 1 1/2 hours or until set.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Amana Pickled Ham

    This ham is served in many of the Amana restaurants as a side. This is a good appetizer to have around, and it keeps well in the fridge.

    4 cups cubed cooked ham
    1 large onion, chopped
    2 cups water
    1 cup vinegar

    Combine all ingredients and place in quart jars. Let stand for several days before eating.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Amana Red Cabbage Slaw
    3 cups water
    1 tablespoon salt
    1 cup granulated sugar
    1 cup vinegar

    Bring to a boil. Let cool. Pour over shredded cabbage. Serve cold.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Hope you enjoy ! If I find more I will post!

    I'm not sure which restaurant we ate in but it was served family style. I tried the cold sauerkraut and it was wonderful. It had a sweetness to it. They serve you so much food that you can make yourself sick. I don't think we ate at the Ox Yoke but I can't remember. We don't go there much anymore. There used to be lots more interesting stuff to see there but it's still good to go once in awhile. The cheeses and breads are really good. We can get the breads in our grocery stores whenever we want them.

  • RE: Looking for recipes from the Amana Colonies in Iowa
    I love the cottage cheese, I always thought that it had chives, but green onion tops sound good also. and I'm sure the buttermilk adds the other taste I could never duplicate. going throught there on Labor Day weekend, but the choice is usually stop and eat or stop at the outlet malls and shopping always wins!!!
