    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

    • ********************


    1. 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.
    2. 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.
    3. Keep warm with a steady fire of domestic devotion and serve with peaches and cream.
    4. When thus prepared they will keep for years. Good luck.

    Final Comments

    My guess is that this was given to Grandma at her bridal shower. I thought this was something special and I wanted to share.
