Almost 10 years ago, shortly after we moved to Madison, our next door neighbors started routinely gifting us with big bags of fresh produce during the summer months.

We were obviously the new, young couple in the area, straight from the Big City, and completely naive when it came to gardening. We didn’t even have potted herbs at that point in our lives! Clearly Mrs. Peachey took pitty on us.

On one of these occasions, tucked inside a big bag of bell peppers that Mrs. Peachey handed me over the fence, I found her recipe for Stuffed Green Peppers. She probably realized that I wouldn’t have a clue how to utilize 30 ripe peppers without at least a little bit of guidance!

Mrs. Peachey was raised Amish, and she is one of the best home cooks that I have ever met! After a decade of living next door, we have been the lucky recipients of many loaves of Mrs. Peachey’s homemade bread, fresh cream pies, jars of apple butter, and 4-course dinners to nourish our growing family after each baby was born.

The food is always made with love, it’s always comforting, and it’s always delicious!

Green Stuffed Peppers

After trying Mrs. Peachey’s Stuffed Green Peppers nearly a decade ago, I can honestly say that it’s still one of my family’s all-time favorites. The hearty filling is perfectly balanced by the light and crisp bell pepper, for a comfort food dinner that won’t weigh you down.

As your gardens grow this season, and as the bounty at your farmer’s market continues to expand, I hope that you’ll take advantage of the fresh produce and give her recipe a try. It just might become a summertime tradition in your house as well, bringing you joy and feeding your family for decades to come!

  1. That must’ve been so nice that you got so much produce when you first moved in! I don’t have a garden, but am planning to do one next year. I can’t wait for all of the veggies! These green peppers look SO good! My husband always asks when I’m going to make them, so I’ll have to try this recipe. Love the sound of it!

    1. Oh, fun! A garden for next year! You have plenty of time to start planning it perfectly. 🙂

      In the meantime, buy some peppers at the farmer’s market and give these a try!

    2. Never anticipate your veggies,just go with what you get. Believe me, Murphy watches! Squirrels love green peppers and will steal every last one if given half a chance. (I found this to my sorrow.) They will also pull up every last kohlrabi seedling and eat the roots,leaving the sad bodies for you to find…We won’t even discuss what they do to corn…tomatoes…strawberries (!!!)…

  2. Thanks for sharing..I love Amish reciprs!!! Remind’s me of my Mom and her best friend’s cooking.. would you have a recipe for Amish sweet and sour Cole slaw??? Mom’s friends Miss Kathleen, gave her secret recipe to my Mom and she kept it a secret. .not even my sister or I got it, even when after her passing , we shared her recipes was it written down anywhete!! I do remember the dressing was cooked on the stove and had binegar,Heinz apple cider or Braggs,sugar,mustard seeds and I can’t remember the rest. The veggies she used were shredded cabbage,carrots ,a small ofbonion, and I font remember anything else being in it.
    Thank you

    1. Hi, Marilyn! I’m so glad that these recipes bring back wonderful memories! I think that’s the best part of cooking at home and feeding others. 🙂

      I don’t have a recipe for the coleslaw that you mention, but I’m going to check with my neighbor and see if she’s familiar with something similar. I’ll get back with you!

      1. Thanks a lot…I don’t remember her her salting

        he veggies,and draining like her cucumber salad,just pouring the dressing on it,stirring it,covered it he bowl and put in fridge. Sometimes she would make the night before to take to potluck dinners at church,or family gatherings the next day. Thanks again, Blair

        1. Okay! That’s kind of what I figured! I will go ahead and try it without salting and see how it goes! Thanks for the inspiration. 🙂
