After entering her kosher pickles into the Creative Activities Competition for preserved food at the Minnesota State Fair, Doris discovers that they’ve been discarded onto a back-room table for the second year in a row! Disappointed but not defeated, Doris sets out to uncover why they’re not receiving their due ranking amongst pickles. Based on true events, this sold-out hit from last season with Sally Wingert is back!
