Amish Country in Ohio

There is a big concentration of the Amish people in Holmes County in Ohio. They are great crafters who make quality products. They make fine cheese. You will be amazed to see how fast they hand quilt. They live without electricity and do not drive because of their beliefs. Obviously they do not blog online like we do.

I was on my way home from work when I saw an Amish woman selling fresh produce with a buggy in the shed in Dalton in Ohio. She had a lot of corn. It would be nice if I know how to make corn ice-cream. My friends in the US told me that the idea does not taste good. Wait till they try it!
I bought a jar of apple butter from her and sought her permission to take a picture of her buggy. Her power horse was tied it to a tree nearby. It is wise to keep the horse away from her stall so that her customers would not find any offensive smell.

My husband had not heard of corn ice-cream until he tried it in Malaysia. He loves it. He checked the ice-cream recipe on the internet and it would take a lot of work to make it so we never kept the recipe or attempted to try. We would need an ice-cream maker which we don't have. It's ironic that US produces a lot of corn but we can't find corn ice-cream here.

If you are asking Albert, I cannot answer. If you are asking me, yes I have been to Indonesia but I would like to visit Bali someday. Enak sekali aiskrim jagung!
