Old Farm Country Cookbook will return you to an era when all food was local and farming was a family-run affair. When Jerry Apps was growing up on a Wisconsin farm in the 1930s and 1940s, times were tough. Yet most folks living on farms had plenty to eat. Preparing food from scratch was just the way things were done. Delicious meals were at the center of every family and social affair, whether it be a threshing-day dinner with all the neighbors, the end-of-school-year picnic or just a hearty supper after chores were done. Inspired by the dishes made by his mother, and featuring recipes found in her well-worn recipe box, Jerry Apps and his daughter, Susan Apps-Bodilly, take us on a culinary tour of life on the farm during the Depression and World War II.
