So I went to the Dutch Market...

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

... yesterday and I bought a gallon of coconut oil, some rice flour, some buckwheat flour. I was out of flaxmeal so got some more of that. OH and some tapioca flour. (they didnt have coconut flour)

Now what?! haha.

Maybe not today, but some day soon, I see pancakes in my future :)

    I think when they first moved into this area, I was just a kid, but they were also called Pennsylvania Dutch. That is my best guess as to where the "Dutch" part comes from. We just call them Mennonites. We also have alot of Amish around here.

I had Mennonites pour the concrete on my house. They drive trucks and use cell phones, but have a bit of an accent. Then I had Amish that built the rest of my house, and they drove their horse and buggy every day and did everything with hand tools or a gas-powered saw.

Most of the time when they would speak amongst themselves, they use some other kind of language or dialect with only a few words that I would recognize. Maybe that is where the name comes from. Wiki says 'Over time, the various dialects spoken by these immigrants fused into a unique dialect known as Pennsylvania Dutch or Pennsylvania German. At one time, over a third of Pennsylvania's population spoke this language..."

Anyways, the Amish that were here were always whistling and singing, so I felt like they built us a happy home.

    It is owned and operated by a Mennonite Family. They buy in bulk and repackage it there. I love it. It enables my spice addiction, and makes it affordable. :)
