BackstoryThis recipe is from my great great Aunt. The following story is hers as well.
After I became an official member of the Sauermilch family in 1943 and began participating in family occasions. That is when I learned about THE apple salad. This is a recipe belonging to the sister of
E.R.’s mother, Isabel Metz Sauermilch and her sister was Hilda Metz Neumeyer. This recipe was published in the first cook book published by the Presbyterian Church ladies in Yorktown, Texas. It is still a favorite of mine and my family’s. It was always served in a cut glass bowl.
