Gramma’s Cupboard-Country Wisdom and Lessons for Life

Thus saith the LORD,

Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good Way,

And walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.

-Jeremiah 6:16

Gramma’s Cupboard

From Grandma’s Cupboard:

Over-salted the beans: add a raw potato while boiling.

Fudge won’t set up: put it back in the kettle and bring it to a boil again.

Chicks with poopy bottoms: add 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar to qt. of chicks’ drinking water.

Chicken lice from the barn on the kids: make them play outside. Chicken lice keep traveling. They leave children as fast as they can.

Healing a sick chicken: soak up to the neck in warm water with 1 c. dissolved Epsom salt for 5 minutes. Release to dry in the sun.

Bleeding kitchen cuts: sprinkle with chili powder.

2 pounds white rice flour
