So, when i found out about that show a half a year or so ago, I immediately located every episode.  Handily, i think it was dailymotion that has all of them.

The country season was fantastic, but my god the funk season was incredible.  I laughed constantly through each episode.  Personal favorite story below.

but dolly is the greatest! i wish she'd just accept the Presidential Medal Of Freedom already.

if not for her music and cultural contributions, or for her free kids book program, perhaps now for her.....coleslaw?

Hmmmm. Interesting. The guy I've been seeing puts thinly sliced jalapeños in his slaw; the pickle juice could be an excellent addition.

I saw Dolly a few years ago in Atlanta. It started raining, but she kept performing (stage was covered). Even though we got soaking wet, we were still smiling the entire time. Just about everybody was - you can't help but smile when you're in her presence.

If you care about her early career, yes.  Otherwise, no.  His own place in music history mostly only matters because of her.

Actually, I'll revise my own answer.  Because "I Will Always Love You" was written about Wagoner.  She felt guilty about ditching him and planning her own career path.  So he's still only important in relation to her, but that song mattered beyond that.

I actually heard her tell the story of writing it for a business (as opposed to romantic) partner in an audio track once. I just didn't know his name.

Did you know she still home cooks biscuits and milk-pepper gravy for her hubby of 50+ years herself, always while wearing high heals?

She should TAKE that presidential medal offer, already.....

The juice from pickled jalapenos too. Even better if you pickle them yourself. Don't use too much tho.

Is pickle stuff unusual in coleslaw? I don't always see it, but I see it often enough to consider it standard.

Sorta like [ketchup/mustard] on a hot dog or whatever. Not universal, but frequent enough to not be strange.

My first exposure to it was as a kid, and it had pickle stuff in it. Supposedly a family recipe from great-grandma or further back. I never liked pickles, and never liked mayo, so I was averse to it, and never really had it. Still am, for that matter. But I have seen/helped make it with numerous non-family members who used pickle stuff. In fairness, also done the same with people who didn't.

I will say I've never seen jalapeños added to coleslaw, but a lot of people I know, especially in my family, think pepperoni is a bit too spicy.

Honestly couldn't tell you. On mom's side, I know we're recent immigrants to the US (grandparents fled Castro in the early 60s), so for purposes of this convo, that can be ignored. On dad's side, I know we've been here since the 1600s, and most of the location history is best described by saying "Maryland and north." I know my great-grandma on dad's mom's side comes from NY, and I *think* dad's dad's mom comes from Boston. Not sure though, and I don't know which great grandma that recipe came from. Family matters are weird - I just found out I have a half-uncle in the UK because grandpa fathered a son before he met my grandma, and somehow that son is now in the UK.

It's also entirely possible sometime in there someone from the South, or the West, or wherever the f*ck else, came in and said "Hey, add pickle stuff!" and that became a family thing.

What makes me curious about it is that my family is not the only one I've seen add pickle stuff to coleslaw, I've seen others, but I have no commonalities that I can think of and apparently it's not usual.

Like I said, no idea where it came from, it could have been from anywhere. Hell, it could have been from immigrants from [country].

Maybe Dolly is a distant cousin. That's be cool. I already know I'm related to General Hooker, so being related to Dolly would make things even more interesting.

You know I'm a strict food neutralist. Seeing different groups combining to make new variations of food is an idea I absolutely love.

decades of coleslaw-{eating, making, throwing away disgusting restaurant/picnic versions} experience here, and it is honestly 100% new to me. or as Axeofjudgement noted: makes entirely too much sense!

much as I love mayonnaise, my favorite coleslaw is always the vinegar based ones (tiny bit of mayo allowed. but no sugar!) - grated carrot. no raisins! so, pickle juice and pickles definitely fit right in there.

tbh I have not often (never?) seen bell pepper, and surprisingly not even onion either. but those both sound allowable.
