With berries ripe and ready for picking, it’s time to plan your entry in the Best in the West Recipe Contest, part of Mountain Heritage Day’s gathering at Western Carolina University on Sept. 24.
This year’s competition will focus on dishes using berries of any kind.
All entries must use berries as a recipe ingredient. The recipe does not have to be original, but the item must be made from scratch.
Entry forms will be available at N.C. Cooperative Extension Service and at WCU Mountain Heritage Center in the next few weeks.
So get out your best recipes for pies, cakes, breads, cookies, muffins and start making some great berry dishes.
