Subject: dutch oven

3 LAMSAS informants gave "Dutch oven" as a response to the 'frying pan'

question: 2 on the Shenandoah River in No. Virginia and 1 in Baltimore

(all type A "folk").

One of my informants (elderly farmer, central SC) showed me a Dutch oven

in his shed. It was made of cast iron, had legs, had an indentation

around the lid for putting coals in, and was about the size of a large

saucepan. I think it was used for making (corn?)bread.
