Our annual apple pie contest gets serious, a new variety of apple and caramel apples….
If he’s talented enough to cook Sunday supper for the Clintons, then surely, he’s got the palate required to evaluate your Aunt Betsy’s golden apple pie.
That’s right, Oscar Flores, the Clintons’ personal family chef, will be judging our apple pie contest on Saturday. He will be joined by Michelle Hecht, whose winning apple pie last year made judges swoon. Among them,, Beth Sovern, Family and Consumer Sciences Teacher at Bell Middle School and Helen Harrison, ESL Teacher at Bell, 7 Bridges and Horace Greeley, who are returning to the judges’ table for another round of grueling work.
Remember – your entries must be submitted by 10:30 am on Saturday to qualify.
May the best pie win!
And on the subject of apples, there’s a new apple in town and everyone is talking about its “monster crunch.” Introducing the sweet and snappy Snapdragon apple which you can find in limited supply at the Orchards of Concklin tent. This is not a baking apple, but a crazy delicious apple to be eaten out of hand. Immediately!
