Origin of Out of the frying pan, into the fire

Posted by Kristen DeWitt on April 03, 2003

We have been trying to figure out where the saying "Out of the frying pan, into the fire" came from and have been unable to find it yet. Do we have the entire phrase right and can anyone shed some light onto this matter.
Thanks a bunch!
