What does it mean to coddle a child?
While it is okay for parents to coddle, spoil, or pamper a young child, it's a little unnerving when parents coddle, or pamper adult children. ... Coddle is an old word. Originally, it meant to cook gently in water that is near boiling, as in coddling an egg.

Everyone knows the word coddle. Its synonym featherbed was new to me, however.

I say, smoked gammon ham should be put inside the cooking vessel intact.

Clarkes pub, by Phibsborough Rd, D.7, was the place where I had had it for the first time in my life. That was huge . . . and pieces of ham were barely fitting into the tablespoon.
