    Default The 18th Annual Schaller Ribbon Report

    Well, I did okay at this year's State Fair.

    In spades!!

    Eight blue ribbons: Blackberry jelly, Crab apple jelly, Peach jam, Boozy
    Floozy Peach Amaretto Jam, PICKLED BOILED DIRT CHUNKS!!, Watermelon
    pickles, Stewed tomatoes, Tomato juice;

    Two red ribbons: Plum jelly, Raspberry jelly

    Four white ribbons: Strawberry jelly, Blackberry jam, Nectarine jam,
    Apricot butter

    One pink ribbon: Cherry jam

    I believe those awards are sufficient to garner the award for being the
    best (at least most prolific) canner at this year's GREAT MINNESOTA
    GET-TOGETHER!! You should go!!

    Woohoo, great job!! So, what do you do with all these ribbons you've

    Somebody needs to dethrone the runaway Queen!

    I could take her! Do you have to live in MN to enter the contests?

    Sounds like you better get up early and pack a lunch!

    I just visited the MO state fair and saw the ribbons displayed with the
    winning entries of everything from canned foods to country hams to wreaths.
    I didn't see where any one person dominated a set of competitions the way
    Barb does in MN.

    I saw a 1200 pound pumpkin too. Can that, Barb!

    Let us be the judge of that. I'll take a jar of dirt chunks off your

    Lord, no! I don't even know where most of them are I've got the first
    15-20 years worth in an expanding file thing somewhere. <shrug> My
    success this year was a huge surprise I have a serious family thing
    going on and I've been distracted, tired, and busy. The canning has
    been a blessing it has provided activity for which I have a tangible
    result when I'm done. I am grateful for that.

    Limited quantities, I'm not cheap, and shipping is expensive. <shrug>
    And I only made about 4 pints of those disgusting beets they are
    expensive to make, time consuming to prep, and a PITA AFAIC.
