aunlyn; s. m. relish or moisture that is taken with bread, potatoes, &c.

There is no word in the English language for it, which is a great defect. The inhabitants of Scotland and of the north & north west of Ireland use the word kytshen, [so do the inhabitants of this island] by which they express whatever is eaten with bread or potatoes, flesh, fish, butter, milk, eggs, &c.” Does it originate in our language from ooylyn? as arran as ooylyn (bread and apples).
