Shipshewana Recipes

Plum Sausage Bites

Packed with perky flavor, these links are a must at brunches and potlucks. Plumb jelly, soy sauce, and Dijon mustard create the thick, tangy sauce that clings to the sliced sausages.

2 to 2-1/2 pounds uncooked pork sausage links cut into 1-inch pieces
1 cup plum, apple, or grape jelly
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat until no longer pink; drain and set sausage aside. In the same skillet, combine the jelly, soy sauce, and mustard; mix well. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Return sausage to the pan and heat through. Refridgerate any leftovers.

Yield: 18-22 servings.

Shipshewana Wrap-up

Members had an opportunity to meet new members and renew friendships with old members in the shelter which had been decorated with quilts. Every night a campfire became the gathering place.

What do you do if you lock your keys in your coach. No problem, Dick got out his ladder and crawled through the window of his coach. Good thinking.

Members were treated to great burgers prepared by Doug and Carl at the carry-in. The food was great!

Attendees visited a bison ranch where they got to see several bison. The little one, Bentley, had been raised from birth by employees at the ranch.

Jack got into character at the dinner where we all wore bandanas and chowed down on a a delicious bison dinner.

We visited the Yoder Popcorn store where we sampled popcorn that was grown in Indiana. They had several varieties including black popcorn.

Betty, Doug, and Susie share what else to expect at the next tour, dinner, or social gathering.

Alan gave the message for the Sunday service. He was assisted with the singing of hymns by these able volunteers.

What a great rally. Fun activities, great fellowship, and super food. If you are a member of the Hoosier Cruisers, make sure that you join in the fun in Dayton.
