Some of the sweetest memories are created by sharing family meals through the generations. Whatever your dream family get-together may be, a treasured recipe could help make it a reality in the fourth annual Spreading Smucker’s® Traditions Recipe and Essay Contest.
From September 14 to November 16, 2011, Smucker’s invites consumers to visit www.smuckers.com or www.smuckersenespanol.com and share their original recipes made with at least 1/4 cup Smucker’s jams, jellies, preserves, or fruit butters, plus an original essay of 200 words or less in English or Spanish about how the recipe is part of family traditions and how it makes family celebrations special. The contest takes place during Hispanic Heritage Month, a time when Latinos across the country celebrate their history and culture. In March 2012, five contest finalists will be selected and flown to New York City for a live recipe demonstration and judging, where one will win $20,000 towards a dream family reunion.
In honor of the fourth year of the contest, the Smucker family has reached into their own recipe box to share a special dish that always gets rave reviews during Smucker family get togethers. Citrus Apple Tart features family-favorite flavors like fresh red apples and a warm Orange Marmalade glaze.
What are you waiting for? Get those family recipes, get to cooking and enter today before it is too late! Contest ends November 16th!
