my translater says "A good woman and a good sauce sorts himself"

I did the french and a german translation also but STILL am not too sure what it means by "sorts himself" - I'm guessing it is a "saying"

Proves itself? Shows best of itself? Proves its good worth?

Come on CakePoet... give us a hint!

`if i had to give a guess it would be something along the lines of ``'the best of the sauces rise to the top and outdo everything else" like the creme of the crop.........and women do it best......

Oh sorry, I sometimes switch between language with out noticing, I think that is thanks to bi- lingual home.

En god kvinna och en god sås reder sig själv.

A good woman and good sauce manage them self.

The word reder, means both thickening and being capable of taking care of your self.

Thank you CakePoet - good phrase!
