You’d think that everything the Amish make is entirely homemade. But, I’ve learned that my Amish friends don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen either, especially during the summer when they don’t have the luxury of air-conditioned rooms.
My friend Lydia shared her quick and easy recipe for Peanut Butter Fudge. We enjoyed visiting while sipping tea and enjoying the creamy texture of this simple fudge. Enjoy!

In a medium saucepan stir together milk and sugar and bring to a boil. Boil for 3 minutes and remove from the heat.

Tracy Fredrychowski is a country girl, author, homesteader and everything simple living. She has a passion for writing about the simpler side of life, much like the life she lived growing up in rural Pennsylvania.
Her life has always been intertwined with the Amish, and it’s only fitting that she has a genuine passion for their simplicity, sense of community and God-centered lives.
Growing up in Northwest Pennsylvania she spent her childhood immersed deep in Amish Country. The clip-clop of horse and buggy woke her each morning as Amish men drove past her childhood home on their way to work. As a young woman, she was traumatized by an Amish murder that involved a family member and changed her life forever.
Even though she currently lives in South Carolina her travels take her through Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Wisconsin’s Amish Country every year. During those stops, she researches the communities she visits and prides herself on writing Amish fiction that truly represents the Amish culture. She considers herself very fortunate to have made friends in those communities and values the information they share and wants nothing more than to represent their lifestyle as accurately as possible.
