2. Entrants may NOT have won 1st place in this Blue Ribbon Apple Pie contest at any other fair in 2017.

5. The recipe for the pie and pie crust must be submitted with the entry. It should be submitted on one side of 8 ½” by 11” paper. The recipe must list all the ingredients, quantities, and the preparation instructions. Entrant’s name, address and phone number must be printed on the back side of all the pages.  (All recipes and pies will become the property of the Fair or PA Farm Show and will not be returned.)
6. Refrigeration is not available at the Fair or PA Farm Show. Entries that require refrigeration after baking must indicate so in the recipe. Those entries will not be sold, auctioned or otherwise distributed for consumption after judging for food safety reasons.

NOTE:  Creativity is essential to a varied competition. Do not limit your contest to a “traditional” two-crusted apple pie. We are looking for a variety of fillings in the pies; the pie must include at least 60% apples in the filling.
