Amish Macaroni Salad

in #food6 years ago

A traditional Amish recipe. The Amish are known for being plain and simple. There are no Amish people where I'm from. They're all at least an hour and a half West of Philly.

This recipe makes is a lot. You can always make less. I think it's kinda bland actually. I usually add Cajun seasoning instead of sugar. I did not in this video since it's traditional and my my personal variation.


2 Pounds of elbow macaroni

8 celery stalks

2 yellow onions

6 hard boiled eggs

1 green pepper

5 cups of mayonnaise

10 tablespoons of white vinegar

10 tablespoons of yellow mustard

2 tablespoons of celery seed

10 tablespoons of dill relish

2 cups of sugar



Boil macaroni according to directions on package.

Boil the eggs for about 15 minutes. A splash of vinegar in the water helps.

Dice the celery, onions, and peppers.

Drain the pasta and cool with running water in a strainer.

Cool the eggs with cold water and dice.

Add the mayo, mustard, vinegar,sugar, celery seeds, salt and pepper.

Stir everything together.


This recipe pairs excellent with grilled cheese!

I love watching your cooking videos so much, they are like a treasure for me. From these videos, I learn a lot of new things. So many ingredigents are fresh to me, such as celery seeds in this video. I've never realized that selery seeds can be eaten. Of course, I eat celery.
And the macaroni's name is so funny, but it really looks like elbow. When I first saw the picture, I just thought it was some kind of beans, broad beans.
Thank you for your great job!

A whole recipe book of goodness on the blockchain is gonna be great.

Such neat ingredients in this one for more flavour in what could be a bland dish. I wanna go make this now!

I meant to do a new voiceover and replace the old bumper with the new bumber, but I just didn't have time, and I try to upload around the same 2 times every week. I'm overwhelmed with financial problems right now and so stressed, but I'll recover.

Ah man sucks to hear that. I have had some business transition recently and that can be stressful. Stress is elective to an extent though and I find financial bullshit just forces us onto a better path.

Hopefully you charge right through it and come out better on the other side.
