A blog about the English language.
In a move that caught me by surprise, the word junket came up several times during last Tuesday’s program. I mentioned that it had been one of my least favorite childhood desserts because of its slimy texture. Jim from Petoskey mentioned that, in contrast, he had loved it, especially the maple-flavored variety. Marge from Suttons Bay called in to praise the type used in pie fillings—above all, for raspberry pie, her favorite.
