A good while back, Chatter and I helped Granny clean up some of her old canning jars so she'd be ready for this year's canning season. No matter how hard you try-sometimes in the world of canning and preserving-jars of food go bad.
Granny hadn't cleaned out her old jars in a few summers. We carried them from the basement up to the back yard so we could empty them; wash them in a big bucket of soapy water; and then sit them in the sunshine to dry.
In Appalachia the word wash is often pronounced with an 'r' sound added in: warsh. And the word rinse is often pronounced as rench.
I still hear both usages on a regular basis-do you?
