KNOWLESVILLE – Orleans County 4-Hers put their cooking skills to the test during the annual Produced in New York contest on Saturday morning. Food made and grown in New York State must be used in the competition.

Items which can be used include fruits, meats, vegetables, grains, maple syrup, and dairy products.

Twenty-five Orleans County 4-H’ers and Cloverbuds took park in this year’s contest, which was held in the Trolley Building on the Orleans County 4-H Fairgrounds.

Participants were evaluated during the demonstration for proper techniques and ability to prepare their recipe.

Judges also evaluated the product for eye appeal, taste and nutritional content.
