I put several items in the NJ state fair this year; five in the canning competition and one in the quilt competition. All-in-all, I won a total of four ribbons - three second place (red) and one first place (blue).
I was most happy with the lemon pickle previously shown here and a blueberry chutney that I developed using a spice combination with Bengali origins. I will share both recipes here at a later date.
Thanks for my dedicated taste-testers (I don't taste when I cook) and kitchen helpers. I couldn't ribbon without you. ~ksp
