Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. Codfish cured by dunning, especially for use on the table uncooked. The fish are fitst slack-salted and cured, then taken down cellar and allowed to “give up,” and then dried again. Great pains are taken in this mode of preparation, even to the extent of covering the “fagots” with bed-quilts to keep them clean.
GNU Webster's 1913
- n. Codfish cured in a particular manner, so as to be of a superior quality.
- dun + fish, from its colour. (Wiktionary)
“Dark and dry as one of his own dunfish on a Labrador flake, or a seal-skin in an Esquimaux hut, he seemed entirely exempt from one of the great trinity of temptations; and, granting him a safe deliverance from the world and the devil, he had very little to fear from the flesh.”
