Recipe - Nickname of moonshine brew on the family drama
THE WALTONS/CBS/1972-81. Papa's Recipe was the family moonshine
formula handed down to the Baldwin sisters, Miss Emily (Mary
Jackson) and Miss Mamie (Helen Kleeb), two spinster sisters
living in the Blue Ridge Mountains during the Depression.
The Balwin sisters sold their bootleg moonshine
(oblivious of any wrong doing) and were fond of offering select
visitors to their home a small sample of their dear old departed
father's alcoholic legacy.
Once, when the sheriff raided the sister's home
and took their still, he luckily overlooked their Papa's recipe
formula because "There are certain items of wardrobe that even
the sheriff wouldn't rummage through."
