    What about when you had to cut up Grandma's Lye Soap for the wash tubs and use a washboard? I never did that, but remember watching my grandmother doing it weekly at least.

    I remember my mother cooking pork fat out of the pork and that turns into cracklings .Remove the cracklings and then take that fat and make lye soap this is all done on an old black cast iron pot outside with fire around it and take the cracklings and make crackling cornbread.

    My Michigan parents and grand parents wouldn't know a cracklin' if it whacked them in the face, nor would they know cornbread. They rendered the fat and used it to fry eggs. As far as I know, no one made soap. It was bought in a big bar and cut into shavings.
