Homegrown Alabama Salsa Contest: July 7, 2011

The Homegrown Alabama Farmers Market is spicing it up this July with a homemade salsa competition at the third annual Bama Loves Tomatoes festival.

A panel of local judges will sample the salsa and grade each on taste, freshness, texture, and consistency. Prizes will be awarded for winners as determined by a panel of judges and by the public. Judging by the panel will commence at 3:45.

Free salsa tasting and public judging will begin at 4:30 while supplies last! Chips provided by the market. The public will be invited to vote for their favorite salsa. Winners will be announced at 5:30 p.m.

To participate in the salsa contest, bring one quart of homemade salsa labeled mild, medium or hot, to the Homegrown Alabama info tent between 2 and 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 7. Late entries cannot be accepted.

A written recipe must be included with every entry; including your name, e-mail address, phone number, the name of the recipe, and complete instructions.

Salsas do not have to be tomato-based but must be made from scratch. Participants are encouraged to purchase ingredients ahead of time from the Homegrown Alabama or Tuscaloosa farmers markets.

There is no entry fee. The winners will receive a Homegrown Alabama t-shirt, a BLT poster and other fabulous Homegrown prizes.

All contest participants’ recipes may be used in future Homegrown Alabama publications.
