The meals of the Beverly Hillbillies, ranked in order of edibility

Would you eat these foods featured in the popular sitcom?

Granny (Irene Ryan) was always cooking something up onThe Beverly Hillbillies. All that oil money never went to grocery budget. These were recipes straight from the cabin. At the peak of the show's popularity, thousands of country folk from around the country mailed in recipes and meal suggestions for Granny to fix. Ryan and writer Cathey Pinckney even gathered some of these together in 1966 for a published cookbook, Granny's Hillbilly Cookbook.
