Story master Jerry Apps, joined by his daughter Susan Apps-Bodilly, share the memories that footnote the family recipes plucked straight from the matriarch Eleanor Apps’s well-worn, Depression Era recipe box in their book Old Farm Country Cookbook: Recipes, Menus and Memories. Jerry and Susan will appear at the Frank B. Koller Memorial Library in Manitowish Waters on July 12, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.

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.
