Sweets, treats and much more
FROM spiced eggs to mango chutney to grape jam and rocky road, anyone with a sweet tooth will be flocking to the sweetest section of the Laidley Show.
The preserves, sweets and eggs component is always a learning experience for the exhibitors and a challenging effort for the judge with almost 100 classes of entry.
Chief Steward Valerie Hauser said there will be a special open section – Jams and pickles – to showcase as many varieties of jams, marmalades, chutneys, pickled and marinated classes as possible.
“New additions to this section are fig jam, apple and kiwifruit jam, and even pickled capsicum and a bottle of antipasto,” Ms Hauser said.
“The open sweet section has 12 classes including rocky road, coconut ice, marshmallows and French jellies.
“There is also a division for teenagers aged between 13 and 18 years as well as another for children 12 years and under.
“Because it is school holiday time we hope to get lots of entries.”
Coming in all shapes and sizes, the eggs will be judged along with other tantalising favourites that reappear each year.
Ms Hauser would like to thank all sponsors and people involved for donations and trophies.
Judging commences from 11am on Friday, July 8.
