Berkshire Blueberry & Book Bake-Off
July 23, 2022
Do you have a great blueberry recipe? Then the Berkshire Blueberry & Book Bake-Off is for you. This year’s Bake-Off encourages all ages to join the fun, so we will feature two categories: adults age 17 and up, and junior division 16 and under.
There are five categories:
1) blueberry pies,
2) blueberry muffins & coffee cakes,
3) baked blueberry desserts such as crumbles, crunches, buckles,
4) gluten-free blueberry versions,
5) blueberry jams and jellies.
Entries will be scored on appearance, texture, taste, and creativity and will be judged by a representative from the Cornell Cooperative Extension. Winners will be announced at 11:50 and prizes and ribbons will be awarded in each category and division, as well as, a best in show at that time. After the judging, all entries will be sold by the piece. This Bake-Off is sponsored by the First Congregational Church of Berkshire, and all profits will benefit the Helping Hands Food Pantry.
Applications are due by July 7, 2022. Bake-off entries should be brought to the Berkshire Fire Station on July 23 between 8:15 and 9:00.
There will be a lot going on that day, including blueberry pancake breakfast (7-10), chicken BBQ, local authors, book and puzzle sale, basket raffle, art show, live music, and plenty of vendors, just to name a few of the events. Join the fun, you won’t be disappointed!
