At the point when Jerry Applications was experiencing childhood with a Wisconsin ranch during the 1930s and 1940s, times were extreme. However, the majority of farm dwellers had ample food. Planning food without any preparation was simply business as usual finished, and individuals realized what was in their food and where it came from. Whether it was a threshing-day dinner with all the neighbors, a picnic to celebrate the end of the school year, or just a hearty meal after doing the chores, delicious meals were at the center of every family and social event. As Jerry expresses, "For me food will constantly be related with seasons of good eating, narrating, chuckling, and great hearted fun."
Jerry and his daughter Susan take us on a culinary tour of life on the farm during the Depression and World War II, using recipes from his mother Eleanor's well-worn recipe box as inspiration. With personal stories, menus, and family photos, Old Farm Country Cookbook takes you back to a time when the farm didn't have electricity, making sauerkraut was a family project, and homemade ice cream was better than store-bought ice cream.
