How to Preserve a Husband

by Dorothy Karman

I found this "recipe" in an old church cookbook of my mother-in-law's. The writing is scratchy and faded, but this recipe from our grandmas' time still has a lot of wisdom.

How to preserve a husband

How to Preserve a Husband

Be careful in your selection. Do not choose too young. When one is selected, give your entire thought to preparation for domestic use. Some insist on keeping them in a pickle, others are constantly getting them in hot water. This may make them sour, hard and sometimes bitter. Even poor varieties may be made sweet and tender and good by garnishing them with patience, well-seasoned with love and kisses. Keep warm with a steady fire of domestic devotion and serve with peaches and cream. Thus preserved, they will keep for years.

Wise advice for us all.

This is great advice with lots of wisdom! We should all take it.

Thanks, Kandy.

At bridal showers, I usually give the bride-to-be one of the very nice keepsake cookbooks they can add family and favorite recipes to. Along with encouraging them to ask their mom and mother-in-law for family recipes, I include a copy of this recipe. I hope it helps them focus on taking good care of their husband throughout the years. wrote on 03/29/16 3:47 AM

Firstly the title itself made me speechless by knowing that it has been describing how to preserve a husband. Wonderfully written most likely a poetic way. Every women one must follow it i guess.
