Aunt Bee and Clara Johnson are both jarring homemade pickles. The only difference is that Clara's are good enough to win blue ribbons at the county fair eleven years and counting while Aunt Bee's taste like she floats them in kerosene. The boys are too polite to tell Aunt bee the truth about her pickles and decide to switch Aunt Bee's pickles with store-bought pickles. The plan backfires when Bee decides to enter her pickles in the contest. Written by
