1st Annual Holy Cross Canning Competition

As you plan this year’s garden or begin to harvest asparagus, consider entering our Canning Competition to be highlighted at the October 21 Fall Festival.  Here’s how it works:

· Submit 4 jars of your ribbon-worthy item by Monday, October 8.  One will be used to judge, the other three will be highlighted & sold at the Country Store at the Fall Festival.

· We will have both an Adult and Junior Competition.  Children or Young Adults age 8-18 can enter the Junior Competition.  

· Blue Ribbon Winners for each category will receive Bragging Rights!

· The overall most impressive entry will receive a 12 pack of Canning Jars with lids and a $20 gift card.

· Categories include: Dill pickles, Pickled Beans (Green or Waxed), Pickled Asparagus, Pickled Beets, Whole or Quartered Tomatoes, Salsa, Pasta/Pizza Sauce, Sauerkraut, Relish, Chow-Chow, Jams & Jellies, and Horseradish.

· Entries must have been canned within the past year (after October 2018).

· All jars should be labeled on their lid only. Use plain white label with title of entry and date of preservation.
