How to Preserve a Husband
I found this "Recipe" in my Grandmothers cookbook under the Misc. section. The interesting part is that the recipe card was given to my Grandmother under her maiden name. I don't know what year my Grandmother was married in, but I can tell you that she is currently in her late 80's.
List of Ingredients
- Be careful in your selection: do not choose too young and take only such as have been reared in a good moral atmosphere. Some insist on keeping them in a pickle while others keep them in hot water. This only makes them sour, hard and sometimes bitter.
- Even poor varieties may be made sweet, tender and good by garnishing them with patience, well sweetened with smiles and flavored with kisses to taste.
- Keep warm with a steady fire of domestic devotion and serve with peaches and cream.
- When thus prepared they will keep for years. Good luck.
My guess is that this was given to Grandma at her bridal shower. I thought this was something special and I wanted to share.
