A negro woman cooked the corn-bread and pot-liquor, with which they were fed by her or some other slave.
I gave him a dose of syrup of buckthorn, and put him on a diet of pot-liquor and vegetables till further orders.
For dinner they had meat boiled and one other thing like cabbage, and the children got the pot-liquor.
Sometimes they get a bit of cheese or bacon, but not often, and a good deal of strong cabbage, soddened with pot-liquor.
Use the pot-liquor in which it was boiled, with quarter of a pound of rice, for the next morning's breakfast.
The residue left in a pot after cooking: rubbed him with pot liquor to give him strength (1744+)
