Master Food Preserver: Judging preserved foods at county fairs

By
From page B5 | January 29, 2014 |

Why did the county fair judge choose Linda’s strawberry jam instead of yours?

Do you want to learn how county fair judges evaluate your preserved food so you can improve the quality of your fair entries?

Do you want to be a county fair judge for preserved foods?

Come to an all day workshop/lab and learn the guidelines for preserved food judging at fairs and other competitive events, including the rules used at the California State Fair.

Think you got it figured out after learning the rules? Try your hand at judging samples of preserved foods with our instructors nearby to guide you and answer your questions. Class size limited to 20.

Prerequisite: all attendees must have a basic knowledge of preserving and understand the principals of preserving high acid and low acid foods.

The workshop/labs are offered twice, on Thursday, Jan. 30 and Saturday, Feb. 1 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. at the El Dorado County Fairgrounds, Marshall Building, 100 Placerville Drive in Placerville.

The fee is $50 and there are no refunds. Lunch is included, with a choice of a turkey or vegetarian sandwich.

Register online at ucanr.edu/edcmfpjudgingclass or call 530-621-5528.

While MFP public classes have ended for the season in El Dorado County, monthly classes continue in Amador and Calaveras counties. Check out the schedule at ucanr.edu/mfpcs. El Dorado County MFP free public classes will resume at the end of June and be sure to visit the Master Food Preservers at the El Dorado County Fair in mid-June.
