Leather-britches---Greenbeans that are picked from the garden and have already started turning are often used for dried beans. They are usually tied or stitched with a needle and thread; 30-50 beans long and then placed in an area for drying.

Appalachia has a long history of sugar making. The Cherokees threw hot rocks into hollowed-out logs that were filled with sap. The early colonial settlers, too, quickly learned to make the sweet stuff: even though census enumerators were inconsistent in reporting maple sugar production, the 1790 output is reported for 26 Appalachian counties of southwest Virginia, West Virginia, eastern Kentucky, and eastern Tennessee.

Hog killing was a value for rendering out your lard and make your cracklings and we use the scraps to make soap out of. The way we made lye was everybody had an ash hopper. It’s a big square box and you put all your ashes in it that you take out of the fireplace.
