ORRVILLE, Ohio, Aug. 26 — For more than 100 years, The J.M. Smucker Company has helped create mealtime memories and traditions for families nationwide with Smucker’s jams, jellies and preserves. This summer, families across the country are invited to enter the second annual “Spreading Smucker’s Traditions Recipe and Essay” contest and share their family recipes and memories for a chance to win a five day, four night family trip for eight to the Walt Disney World Resort.
To enter, consumers are asked to share an original family recipe that incorporates at least 1/4 cup of Smucker’s jams, jellies, preserves or fruit butter and the story behind how their recipe makes family celebrations special. The recipe must have been passed down for at least two generations and needs to include names of all family members involved in the sharing of the recipe. Entries will be accepted between August 26 and October 12, 2009. Recipes will be selected and scored on taste, creativity, ease of preparation, appearance and nutritional balance, while the essays will be scored on relevance to theme, creative expression and clarity. The top five finalists will be posted to www.smuckers.com on or about November 5, 2009 for a national online vote. Visitors to the site, 18 or older, will be given the chance to vote for the best recipe to help determine one grand prize winner, which will be announced in December 2009.
