I was recently watching this program on satellite TV. It was about the Amish. Lovely people. Did you know they are all pacifists? Truly admirable.
Anyways, they are apparently very sociable too. In fact, in the summertime they often throw a big picnic.
This got me to thinking. Picnics involve food. And the Amish don’t embrace technology beyond the 19th Century. So how do they keep it fresh?
Yes, I know all about the ice box. My parents were old enough to have still used them. And they told me all kinds of colorful stories about it. But they don’t make ice boxes anymore. And there surely is no iceman to come around nowadays, in any event.
So how do they keep their Potato Salad fresh? They sell Amish Potato Salad at all the local grocery stores where I live. So I know anecdotally they make it. How do they keep it from spoiling?
