Best apple pie sought
Big Plo w Perf orma nce For the first time the Michigan Apple Recipe Contest will feature all types of Michigan Apple dishes other than pie.
“Our focus will still be on pie, however the addition of this second contest will serve to showcase just how versatile apples are,” said Holly Whetstone, marketing and communications specialist for Michigan Apple Committee – one of the sponsors of the event.
Recipe’s for either contest must be submitted to Zehnder’s of Frankenmuth by Dec. 31. The top entries will then be selected to compete onsite Jan. 26 in a heated tent behind Zehnder’s.
“Contestants will bring their already prepared dishes the day of the event to be judged,” said Whetstone. “We’ll have entertainment and cooking demonstrations going during the judging. After the winners are determined, the audience can do some taste-testing themselves.”
The on-site events will take place Jan. 26 with the Apple Recipe Contest at 10 a.m. and the Best Apple Pie
contest at 1 p.m.
Bakers of the top three best pies
for Half-Ton Pickups (recipes must include Pioneer Sugar)
