: I have a friend who is 76 and she keeps using the term/phrase "Pot Lickers" - I looked in the archives and didn't see anything on it...to me it sounds dirty...is there anyone who can tell me what this means and it's origin? Thanks so much for your time.

Not dirty. Tasty. From the dictionary:
pot liquor

n : the liquid in which vegetables or meat have be cooked [syn: liquor, pot likker]
