2011 Homemade Salsa Contest Results

The weather wasn’t the only thing hot during fair, so was the Homemade Salsa Competition. The competition was held on Saturday, July 9th and was open to all ages! Salsa was judged by a qualified panel of judges in the following categories Hot, Mild, and Fruit.  The entries were judged on the following criteria: aroma, consistency, color, appropriate heat level, taste and after-taste. Thanks to Carlos O’Kelly’s for donating the $10 gift cards that were awarded to the winners of the different categories.

After the judging was done the public was invited to taste the entries and vote for their favorite. Thanks to Kendra Abel for donating the tortilla chips for the public tasting.
