I don’t know if I told you but a few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be asked to judge a recipe contest held by Smucker’s.
The rules of the contest were the contestants had to share a family recipe (that included Smucker’s jams and jellies) and how it helps bring their family together.
The contestants were narrowed down to 5 finalists and this is where I came in!
As a judge I got to listen to the finalists share their family stories and recipes…and taste-test each creation. It was a good work day!
All the finalists were incredibly gracious and humble. AND they were all fantastic cooks. HERE’s the link if you want to check out all of their stories and recipes.
BUT the whole idea of a contest is that there is one winner.
Carmell C. from Provo, UT created a Chicken Bacon Burger with Cherry Chive Mayo and it was amazing. Her burger took home first prize.
To celebrate Carmell’s winning recipe and the kickoff to summer, Smucker’s would like to give THREE of my readers a $50 gift card to Cooking.com to create this delicious burger at your Memorial Day celebration as well as a jar of the star of this recipe: Smucker’s Orchard’s Finest Michigan Red Tart Cherry Preserves.
All you have to do is leave me a comment here sharing your favorite Memorial Day/Summertime memory or tradition.
Remember, there will be 3 winners selected!!
Contest is open until Wednesday, May 23rd at 11:59 pm EST
Contest Closed. The winners are comments #16, #100 and #158
Thanks for entering!
