While I'm not a big fan of bread and butter pickles, I do adore a good dill. Dill weed (I always wondered why Butthead called Beavis "Dill Weed") is a relative of parsley and caraway and like another favorite--cilantro--hails from the sunny Mediterranean regions. While my favorite grocer brand, Mt. Olive, offers Mexicana spears along with the average dill and Claussen is super garlicky, these brands have gone above and beyond and taken their cues from the cucumber.
But first enjoy this clip from one of my TV Land favorites--Andy Griffith.
