We are trying to put together more than a cookbook. There are tidbits of information passed along from generation to generation that cannot be conveyed short of a photo or a great story. Here is a note I received from Connie Dalke.She sent a scan of a recipe and here is a letter that explains the scan. Although this is from the “other” side of her family, please take note of the types of things we would love to receive from your family. Be a part of this great project.
In going through a box of old things, I came across a Sweet Pickle Recipe written out by my great-aunt Mary (Ringering) Miller. In the upper right-hand corner is written “Louise” (underlined). I conclude this was how my great-grandmother Louise (Tatro) Ringering made Sweet Pickles, and the recipe was written out by my grandfather’s sister Mary.
I don’t know if you can use this photo-scan or not, since it is not from the Germans-from-Russia side of the family. It does represent how “Plains Folk” did things.
