Showing Off...

I decided to try my luck at Benton County Fair submitting my canned goods. I dropped off a total of eight jars of canned food. I thought at the fair they tasted the food that was canned but I found out I was wrong. They base it all on appearance. My stewed tomatoes looks awesome. I canned them with pieces of onions. I have never done anything like this in my life. I'm very proud of myself. I can't wait for next year. I'm going to do a couple of things different next time maybe pressure cook some more veggies to display at the fair.

1. Stewed Tomatoes-first place

2. Tomato sauce-first place

3. Candied Jalapeno-first place

4. Strawberry Jelly-second place

5. Salsa-second place

6. Cranberry Jalapeno Jelly-blue ribbon

7. Jalapeno Pepper Jelly-blue ribbon

8. Blueberry Jelly-blue ribbon

thanks so much for telling me about this. My first trip to the fair was so fun! Well, they had funnel cake so I would have enjoyed myself no matter what, but it was fun to enter stuff with you! Are you so proud of your ribbons? I am!

Wow, that's awesome Lara!! Your going to have to teach how to do all this canning stuff sometime. To bad we live so far away from each other.
