I have been asked to repeat this story I found in a Farm and Ranch Magazine from the Mennonite Community Cookbook “Favorite Family Recipes.” And because I wrote about barn raising, corn husking, pig butchering in last week story, I think this would be appropriate for today. Thanks for asking.
When new barns were built, all friends and neighbors came to help. Homemakers of our day will no doubt be astounded at all the food consumed in one day. It’s even more difficult to believe when you consider that most of it was made in your great-grandmother’s kitchen.
