I've lived my entire life jn Memphis, but just south of us is a region that has greatly influenced our city and the rest of the nation. I'm talking about the Mississippi Delta, the wide swath of northwest Mississippi that lies between the Mississippi and Yazoo Rivers. This region has a rich history of small businesses offering a few other unrelated services to bring in additional revenue. Like the koolickle. Whole dill pickles and Kool-Aid and sugar. That's it. Don't start with sweet pickles—those salty dills are going to get plenty sweet during the aging process.
