Mmmm…First Annual Blueberry Bake-Off Winners Named
June 14, 2009
It was a blueberry lover’s dream Saturday at the first annual Blueberry Jamboree Bake-Off at the Barrineau Park Community Center.
Dozens of cooks entered their tasty pies, cobblers, cakes and other blueberry goodies in hopes of winning cash prizes in the contest sponsored by the Escambia County Farm Bureau Women’s Committee. There was one basic rule — the homemade dessert must have included blueberries as an ingredient.
After the tempting treats were judged and the winners were announced, the public had the opportunity to sample the entries.
The winners of the first annual Blueberry Jamboree Bake-Off were:
