Cape Cod Long Lick

No grocer but one on “old-time” Cape Cod would know that “Porty Reek long lick” meant Puerto Rico molasses; and no cook, except one on Cape Cod would know that “Hog’s back son of a seacook” for dinner meant boiled saltfish with pork scraps.

Asking for either of these at a grocery store or a restaurant these days would likely get you a strange look…

If you should happen to hear a native Cape Codder speak of “Scalawags,” he is less likely to be referring to his human brethen than he is to the sculpins - those ugly and unwelcome fish that are nuisance to the fishermen.
