In the book & movie, Ninny says that she was 'practically adopted by the Threadgoods', and that she married one of Idgie's brothers. That would make them sisters-in-law.

I don't think that part is ever made very clear. At some point I know Ninny refers to Idgie as her sister in law. However, the Bee Charmer is the nickname that Ruth gave Idgie, and is on the card next to the jar of honey on Ruth's grave at the end of the movie, which suggests that Ninny is Idgie. My personal opinion is that they are one and the same.
