November 9, 2012 in GENERAL INFORMATION

Mike and I enjoyed an overnight retreat this week in Shipshewana, taking in the serenity of this Amish community.  We’d recommend the Farmstead Inn if you’re planning a trip to that area.  We meandered around Shipshewana and Middlebury, enjoying stops at various attractions, gift shops, bulk food stores and bakeries.

We visited the Dutch Country Market, home of Katie’s Homemade Noodles!  The Dutch Country Market is owned by the Norman Lehman family, who started the business several years ago with Norman’s wife Katie hand cranking homemade noodles to sell!  The demand soon became great enough that they began wholesaling their Amish handmade noodles to area businesses.   We loaded our van with boxes & boxes of noodles…We are excited to sell this delicious, quality, homemade noodle here at the Homestead!

Boil the noodles in some salted water until tender, drain, and toss with real melted butter!  For a yummy treat, top with browned buttered fine bread crumbs.  Just a little bit of salt, and you’ll be enjoying a real treat!

Try some for Thanksgiving!
