Smuckers Traditions Recipe and Essay Contest 2011
We are in the midst of Hispanic Heritage Month and Smuckers is having a great tasty contest that will have us reuniting :) Smucker's believes some of the sweetest memories are created by sharing family meals through the generations, and that is very on point with Latinos from all countries and cultures. Smucker's Traditions Recipe and Essay Contest is open for entries through November 16, 2011. To enter you would need to share your original recipe that incorporates at least 1/4 cup of Smucker's Jams, Jellies, Preserves or Fruit Butters AND an original 200-word or less essay in English or Spanish about how the recipe is part of your family traditions and how it makes family celebrations special.

Five contest finalists will be selected and flown to New York City for a live recipe demonstration and judging. The grand prize is $20,000 towards a dream family reunion! What a great prize, family is a very important factor in my life and I have not seen the majority of my family in many years.
