The NY State Fair website was down for the count for several weeks after the fair ended on September 7, 2009. This delayed posting of the official results. Then I went camping for six days. So my apologies to all that it’s taken me awhile to get the official canning, preserving and jam competition results from my own New York State Fair.

The canning and preserving competition at the NY State Fair is held in two separate divisions: Culinary, hosted at the Art & Home Center, features tasted competions in canning, pickling, relishes and jams. The Flower division, hosted at the Horticulture Building, features pickling and canning competitions for items which are judged on appearance but not tasted.

The mother-daughter team of Janet Bender and Elizabeth Shepard tag-teamed their way through the Flowers canning division, earning three 1st, four 2nd and one 3rd place in the five classes in that division. Janet also earned a 1st in the Culinary division with her canned fruit. Be sure to check my blog for Kathy Wood’s Grand Prize winning Red Pepper Relish. Now, without further ado, here are the rest of the official results:
