Best comedy ever.....Andy Griffith Show

Best comedy actor.....Don Knots as Barney Fife. When I watch them, I still break out laughing. The funniest one was the episode where Barney breaks in 3 new deputies.
They had to do that scene multiple times because the actors would bust out laughing.....especially at Floyd the Barber.

Quite a few episodes where his gun would go off accidently. Which is why Andy only allowed him to have 1 bullet. Which he kept in his pocket. :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Couldn’t agree more, Ken. Barney really made that show. Don Knotts had such an expressive face, much like Carrol O’Connor did in All in the Family.

Sooo, when the little cukes are growing I could probably do 2 quarts every couple of days. My question is , like now I have a few but in a day or so they get soft, or kinda rubbery.  Are they still worth canning when more come a long??

Thanks Glenn,  thought I could hide a few in. They're starting to pop on the trellis, came home and grabbed a half ice cream pail with a bunch more little ones showing promise.  The first round had to be refrigerator  sweet pickles with some serranos cut in half for a little bite.

No but I'm betting they could be refrigerated, added to some Hendricks gin and muddled to make a tasty gin & tonic.  :happy1:

those types you will be good. But if your going to can them like I did, the sooner you get them in jars the better.

I do what you are doing except I blanch in the microwave. Then spread on cookie sheets and in the freezer overnight. Then measure out a meal and vacuum seal it. As long as the seal doesn't break....They keep for a LONG time.
