Some people will do anything to make sure their recipes are not forgotten when they pass on.

The New York Times recently posted and article by  that they say you can’t take it with you, but recipes do disappear when loved ones die. Some families have found a novel way to record them for posterity. The article is entitled Family Recipes Etched in Stone. Gravestone, That Is. and highlights several families that have had special recipes carved in stone so they are not forgotten.

In cemeteries from Alaska to Israel, families have memorialized their loved ones with the deceased’s most cherished recipes carved in stone. These dishes — mostly desserts — give relatives a way to remember the sweet times and, they hope, bring some joy to visitors who discover them among the more traditional monuments.
