Some Popcorn Facts

Americans consume 17 billion quarts of popped popcorn annually or 54 quarts per man, woman and child. It is one of the most wholesome and economical foods available.

Approximately 70 percent is eaten in the home (home popped and pre-popped) and about 30 percent outside the home (theaters, stadiums, schools, etc.). Unpopped popcorn accounts for approximately 90 percent of sales for home consumption.

Apple Dumplings

2 cups flour 2/3 cup shortening
2 ½ tsp. baking powder ½ cup milk
½ tsp. salt 6 apples, peeled and cut in halves

2 cups brown sugar ¼ cup butter
2 cups water ½ tsp. cinnamon

This recipe comes from our featured cookbook of the month called “The Wooden Spoon Cookbook” by Miriam Miller (Item No. AMT-P-704). The recipes in the cookbook were compiled by a 17 year old Amish girl. You will get 194 pages of recipes that were some of Miriam’s favorite recipes from her mother and grandmother. You will also get to read some of Miriam’s personal childhood memories and get a glimpse into an Amish girls life. I’m sure you and your family will thoroughly enjoy this wonderful cookbook.
