One of my must-read, bookmarked websites covers everything about American regional food. It is packed with inspiration for Ancestors in Aprons, so I was honored when American Food Roots asked me to tell the story of Grandma Ida Amstutz Badertscher’s Raisin Nut Pie.
The pie is a Swiss Mennonite immigrant favorite, and this recipe was already more than 50 years old when Gertrude Badertscher gave me it to me when I was a newlywed. You can see my raisin pie story at American Food Roots here (Note 3/2020: The website is defunct, so this link takes you to the article via the Wayback Machine.)
Congrats on their excellent taste! I admire how you have taken your online presence into such meaningful ventures. I don’t see how you do it all.
Thanks JJ. I’m pleased to honor Ken’s grandma.
