How To Preserve A Husband

Photobucketpic fr bakingnewbies
My hubby bought a recipe book while he was studying in New Zealand because he was sharing an apartment with 3 other guys and each person had to take turns cooking. When we got married I got hold of this book and had a lot of fun trying out the various recipes. Tucked between hundreds of recipes is this one very unusual recipe:

How To Preserve A Husband

Be careful in your selection. Do not choose too young. When once selected give your entire thoughts 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 sweetened with love and seasoned with kisses. Wrap them in a mantle of charity. Keep warm with a steady fire of domestic devotion and serve with peaches and cream. Thus prepared they will keep for years.
