    The Andy Griffith Show

        (Unusual for me to blog about a TV show, but cucumber pickle season is officially over and I'm already feeling nostalgic about making pickles!)

         Aunt Bee is well-known in Mayberry for her cooking skills. In the first episode, she serves a platter of fried chicken with all the trimmings, and thereafter her character is associated with wholesome, home-cooked meals. She frequently contributes meals to community or church events and brings picnic baskets of food to Mayberry's tiny jail for its lawmen and inmates.

         While Aunt Bee is celebrated for her cuisine, she falls short as a pickler. Andy and Barney refer to her pickles as "kerosene cucumbers."

         This is my favorite episode:
