Best-Loved Hexel and Mummix

Odds And Ends Stuff

Up to this point, our Pennsylvania Dutch (German) recipes have proceeded along usual lines. However, this section will deal with Hexel and Mummix.  Sorry, you will not find these words in a dictionary and probably not even in a Pennsylvania Dutch dictionary, if you are lucky enough to get hold of one.  These words are distinctly regional and colloquial.

Simply the Pennsylvania Dutch has fun with their language.  All talk in Pennsylvania Dutch seem to be humorous.  The speakers tilt their sentences with laughter at the ends. The language can make a comic song or a funny story doubly hilarious and much is lost in translation. 

The folk that gathers solemnly on Grundsou Day to report its observations of the groundhog casting its shadow, celebrate his awakening, and then seemingly eat woodchuck at the dinner to mark the day.

Pennsylvania Dutch Did You Know?
Mass emigration of Palatines began out of Germany in the early 18th century. In the spring of 1709, Queen Anne had granted refuge to about 7,000 Palatines who had sailed the Rhine to Rotterdam. From here about 3,000 were sent to America either directly, or through England, bound for William Penn's colony. The remaining refugees were sent to Ireland to strengthen the Protestant presence in the country.
