By Jerry Apps & Susan Apps-Bodilly
Return to an era when all food was local and farming was a family-run affair with story master Jerry Apps. Together with his daughter, author Susan Apps-Bodilly, they share the farm family food that only Jerry's mother knew how to make in this warm-hearted, memoir-style cookbook plucked right from Eleanor Apps's Depression Era recipe box. Inspired by her dishes, Jerry and Susan, take us on a culinary tour of life on the farm during the Depression and World War II. Seasoned with personal stories, menus, and family photos, Old Farm Country Cookbook recalls a time when electricity had not yet found its way to the farm, when making sauerkraut was a family endeavor, and when homemade ice cream tasted better than anything you could buy at the store.
