    This is I have to say a great beef stew. Much much better than I have ever made before. It’s a keeper for sure.

    I had everything but the ground cloves for it. I used V8 juice instead of tomato juice and made it 1/2 recipe on Saturday and on Sunday I made a whole recipe. Lots of carrots and potatoes in it.

    Thank you for the recipe.

        I sure will Kevin.

        I am going to try the potato salad where you grate the potatoes ect this week to see how it is.

        When I read that you make the dressing for it instead of just using Mayo or salad dressing I kinda went What? It seems that the dressing that you put on it is the same recipe that my Grandmother used for all her salad dressing. We call it Grandma Wilson’s salad dressing. My mother used it all the time for salads

        She was German and br in Hazelton Pa Her parents coming from Germany. She was German Lutheran not Amish but the recipe is the exact same as hers. So putting it in a Potato salad is going to be interesting. I don’t think anyone in the family thought to use it in potato salad. She was a very good cook and learned from her mother as did her sisters.

        I really enjoy reading the recipes from you and have made several of them.

        Sharon, interesting…I’ll be interesting to hear what you think. I have a good friend who is from Hazleton (last name Hamer)..but the Pennsylvania Dutch (Hazleton area) culinary connection between the Amish, Mennonites and Brethren is pretty strong, so this is an interesting comment!

    I’ll let you know how the potato salad came out re taste. We don’t have big sweet pickles to grate so I will have to use the little ones in the jar. Will take a picture also

    I made the grated potato salad today. Only I was asked not to grate the potatoes. So washed my hands cleaned my nails and mushed them up with my hands. I followed the recipe to a T cept for the hand mushing potatoes. [ when you take a whole potato and peel the skin off and not allow a knife to touch it and take your hands and break it up to bite size pieces and go from there with everything else the potatoes seem to take on a better flavor we found. ]

    The recipe is GOOD! Well worth making. Am going to add some color to it tho with small pieces of either green sweet peppers or red one.

    The people who live on my land next to me are having a Easter Fiesta Bar B Q tomorrow out in the field under the big Oak trees so the potato salad is for the BBQ. Wasn’t sure how they were going to like the potato salad with a different dressing.

    Well I got the potato salad good and cold like the recipe said and just came down from their house where I had a sample of it. 2 kids 1 teenager and 2 adults all gave it a thumbs up. They wanted more lol They loved it. So did I. I was told for future BBQs to make that recipe for potato salad from now on.

    So down here in Texas it got 10 stars.

    Mrs Yoder’s Baked Beans are next for the next BBQ they have. [ They love BBQ’s and have them a lot. ]

    Have a safe and great Easter there
