Doing down

Parf of speech: Verb, OED Year: N/A, OED Evaluation: N/A


I just remember doing um- doing down the peaches and stewing down the rhubarb and doing all that kind-of-stuff. Like my mother would have jars and jars of stuff. You didn't buy anything like that, you didn't buy canned vegetab-- or fruit and-everything-like-that. Everything was done down.
And- but the old timers made Christmas cake. The old timers did down peaches and pears and tomatoes. Everything was- they took the beef and they put the beef in and they did it down at- like you had jars- jars of beef in your- in your cupboards.
