“…When the barrels come back, take that bung, take that bung out. What it did, when you pounded on that top of that barrel, it made that stave do this—it worked the bung out. Oh, wouldn’t that smell nice, that clove mustard! Sometimes them barrels [were] sitting out in the sun, and they built up pressure in there, and that would come out and go right through the ceiling. The spray would hit you right in the face. Oh, wouldn’t that burn, that stuff. Especially if you just shaved.”
“Buck” Suddy helped operate Raye’s Mustard Mill in Eastport for many years. The mill provided the mustard many of the canneries used to can sardines.
