Stoltzfus Iced Tea
5 regular Lipton tea bags
1 mint tea bag
4 cups water
1 1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice

Microwave the first 3 ingredients in a microwaveable container for 4 minutes. Let sit for at least 1 hour (maximum 24 hours). Pour iced tea into 1-gallon pitcher and stir in sugar and lemon juice. Refrigerate until chilled.

Stoltzfus Dinner Rolls
3 1/4 c water (warm enough so you can put your finger in it without it being too hot – a little warmer than lukewarm)
2 1/2 T yeast
12-13 c flour, divided (bread flour preferred or at least 1/2 bread flour)
1 c butter or margarine
1 c sugar
1 T salt
3 eggs

Put yeast in water and stir.  Microwave butter until just melted, whisk in eggs, then add sugar and salt.  Pour this into yeast/water mixture and stir.  Stir in 6 c. of flour until smooth.  Stir in remaining flour until soft and not sticky.  Knead until smooth.  Allow to rise at least 1 hour until about doubled in size.  Knead again then cut in small pieces and put into little rolls, then into pans.  Probably makes about 9 dozen or more.

Esther’s Poppyseed Salad Dressing

Salad ingredients:
Feta cheese
Fruit, such as apples/oranges, if desired.

Dressing ingredients:
1 t salt
1/4 c honey
1/2 c sugar
1 T poppy seed
1/4 c vinegar
1 c oil
1 t mustard

This is quite a lot of dressing, probably enough to cover salad for at least 50 people.

i personally have not tried these recipes, but i have tasted the dinner rolls and the iced tea and both are phenomenal. i can’t wait to make the dinner rolls and iced tea myself. i’m not a fan of sweet salad dressings, so i’m not sure that i’ll be making the salad dressing anytime soon.

[edit] my mom made the rolls recently and they are just as good (if not better) when i had them at sm’s wedding. and i made the iced tea too. i doubled the recipe and kept the sugar down to 1 cup for the 8 cups of water instead of doubling it to 2 2/3 cups. delicious ! summer, please get here soon ! you showed your head last week, but this week it looks like you’ll be gone for a while…
