Old Wife's Tales
From The Desk Of Jetta

A mild winter lies ahead if onions dug from the garden at harvest time have thin skins.

Any women who desires to have order in her home must allow sage to flourish in her garden.

Stir cake from you and you will stir your troubles away.

A cake baked in the morning will rise, a cake baked in the afternoon will drop.

To make cake light, it must always be stirred the same way.

Pastry must be rolled an uneven number of times otherwise it will be tough.

Every scrap of pastry must be baked or there will be an unwanted expense.

Cold hands and a warm heart make the best pastry.

A thunderstorm will addle eggs and sour any milk that’s been left out.

Before a young girl bakes her first loaf of bread, her hands should be rubbed in sugar so that she may always make good, sweet bread.

Stir bread away from you for good luck, trouble will come if you stir toward you.

Evergreens should be taken down on Old Christmas Day (January 6th) or ill-luck will follow.

A clean pot should be kept in an empty oven, this will ensure there will always be at least a little food to cook in it.

When making the bed, don’t interrupt your work or you will spend a restless night in it.

Stabbing needles through yarn balls will bring bad luck to anyone who wears something made from that yarn.

Rosemary planted by the doorstep will keep evil away…put salt on the doorstep of a new house and no evil can enter.

If a new bride should quietly take her mother’s dishcloth, she will never be homesick.
