Dixie Burmeister, Coordinator of the Contest, says “Each year I am amazed at the variety and quality of the dishes that fit into our four categories. With four prizes for each category, plus many prize drawings, all who enter stand a good chance to win some great prizes.”
The contest this year is presented by Jarden Home Brands, Makers of Ball Brand Fresh Preserving Products, and Albertsons with a $200 Grand Prize and $100, $75, and $50 Albertson’s gift cards in each category. There will also be prize drawings for Ball Brand Fresh Preserving Products, Gateway Canyons Get-A-Way, Peach Tree True Value Food Dehydrator, Star Products and more.
“The judges aren’t the only ones to be sampling the delicious entries, there’s good eating to be had for all” says Burmeister. The Palisade 4-H will have sample sales of all the entries with part of the proceeds benefiting the Palisade 4-H Club. Jill Fasken, Palisade 4-H leader, says “The sample sizes will be very generous and need we say…. Delicious!” Sample sales will begin after the judging is done and winners are determined - between 10:30 AM to 11:00 AM. Winners will be announced just outside the Community Building at 11:00 AM.
