Do you have a canned pear recipe that you love? Are you developing new recipes?
The Pacific Northwest Canned Pear Service is looking for customer-pleasing recipes that capitalize on the natural goodness and convenience of poached, peeled and ready-to-use USA-grown canned Bartlett pears. Entering a qualifying recipe can bring you cash prizes, industry and trade publicity, and coverage on eatcannedpears.com and social media channels.
First prize is $2,000. Second prize is $1,000. Third prize is $500. The contest is open now through November 30, 2017. Winners will be contacted and announced on or about December 18, 2017.
The judging criterian consists of:
- 25 percent use of canned pears as an integral part of the dish
- 25 percent foodservice menu fit
- 25 percent appetite appeal
- 25 percent creativity/originality
Enter by submitting your recipe along with a digital photo to the Northwest Canned Pear Service website.
