This is my first year of doing some actual canning. I’ve done some blackberry jam, a few quarts of tomatoes, a couple batches of pickled squash (some with sliced carrots), and this past weekend, some peach preserves and spicy peaches. All delicious, even if I say so myself.
So, in conversation with my mom tonight, she convinced me to enter my stuff in the county fair. And I did.
Has anyone ever entered their stuff in a county fair? Ever been a judge in the county fair? I know they won’t taste any of the canned stuff, so it’s judged on appearance, but any dos or don’ts?
