Subject: RE: Origins: What a Jimmy-john is? (from Green Corn)
Interesting thread ... I, too, have been wondering what a jimmyjohn is. The large glass bottle for home-brewing, however, I've always heard referred to as a "dame-jeanne", which is also mentioned in the Wikipedia article Azizi gave the link to.
I inherited no less than 4 dame-jeannes from my Dad, and I use them for brewing wine. 3/5 redcurrants, 1/5 blackcurrants and 1/5 blueberries is a good recipe.
