Old Fashioned County Fair - Part 2

While trying to decide what in the word I should blog about, I remembered the old saying, do what you know. So with that in mind, I’m sharing articles here the V2 blog about growing up in the country and connecting my memories with vintage items.

Old Fashioned County Fair is a 4 part series.

In today’s visit we’re going through the building where all the home canned goods are presented and judged.

Of course you also had to go through the isles of all the home canned goods; like pickles, jams, jelly, chow-chow, butters, canned fruits and vegetables. You name it and it could be pickled or made into a jam! My Mama and Granny particularly loved to go into this contest building to see what new recipes had been thought up, and of course to see who had gotten that blue ribbon!

As many of you know, good cooking can be an art form. We can pour our hearts and souls into the foods we prepare for our families. In preparing for the home canned goods contest, one must remember that these must be to the satisfaction of the judges and not necessarily to the tastes of the cook and her/his family members.

You can find all manner of vintage items for canning and preserving in many of the V2 Team shops! Below are just a few examples of the fine things you’ll find.

Thank you for tagging along through the fairgrounds of times gone by.
On our next visit to the county fair, we’ll relive more wonderful memories of this special time when we go through the buildings and tents set up for the judging of home garden flowers, fruits and vegetables.
