How to preserve a husband

granny's preserves Originally uploaded by thyladyinred . As we were going through my grandmother's things after her passing, my wife came across a wonderful old composition book. It apparently belonged to my grandmother's grandmother and has just a few short pages. One of the pages is dated 1919. Another has a short treatise entitled "How to preserve a husband" which I share with you today. Be careful in your selection, do not choose too young When once selected, give your entire thought for domestic use Some insist in keeping them in a pickle, others are constantly in hot water. This may make them sour, hard and sometimes bitter Even poor varieties may be made sweet, tender and good garnishing them with patience well sweetened with love and and seasoned with kisses Wrap them in a mantle of charity Keep warm with a fire of domestic devotion And serve with peaches and cream Thus prepared, they will keep you for years.
