2013 Award Winning Jams!!

Award Winning Flavor!

While researching traditional fruit preserves, I came upon information regarding the Minnesota State Fair, and how creating these delicious preserves was a competition for Best in Show. I thought a competitive edge would be fun and a great challenge. I looked up my district, Clark County Nevada, and learned the fair was that coming weekend!! Within 48 hours I had my lot of a dozen flavors ready to go and entered in the fair.

As a first timer, I was so excited to be apart of this event and see what others in my community were creating! I lost a few point here and there on things like presentation, (for example, I did not add fabric of ribbon to my jars) something I had never even considered.  I was pleased to find out that the judge’s found many of my flavors to be on the exceptional side, leaving many wonderful comments and detailed score cards.

I was absolutely delighted with the results of my 2013 Clark County Fair Home Science scores for my jams and preserves.  As a beginner, only in my first year, I feel proud of how far I’ve come, and look forward to only getting better each year to come!!
