All canned and jellied products must include the following information on the label (blank labels will be available at the Fair): - name of product -method of preparation (type syrup, type pack, any additional ingredients added) as applies to product canned -method of processing (i.e., pressure canner, water bath) and pounds of pressure used if food was pressure canned -elevation at which processing was done-exact processing time-date processed –RECIPE STRONGLY RECOMMENDED - REMEMBER TO ADD ALTITUDE ADJUSTMENT TIME TO RECIPE YOU ARE PREPARING. See Altitude Chart below. (Example: Recipe calls for 5 minutes processing time. For 6001-8000 feet, add 15 minutes to processing time = 20 minutes total processing time). Recipe info can be included on the information label or attached as a separate label, but should be attached to the product because of food safety concerns.

2. Jellied products and Other Canned products must be displayed in U.S. standard jar (i.e, Ball, Kerr). Two-piece matching lids must be used.
3. Acceptable canning methods include pressure canned or hot water bath. It may be necessary to open home canned food entries to inspect for judging purposes. Judges will use their own discretion as to whether or not they will open and taste canned products. Directions for different methods are available from the Routt County Extension office and local libraries. Products with paraffin (wax) seals will not be accepted.

4. Including the recipe is beneficial.

5. Head space (the unfilled jar space above the food and below its lid) should be 1/4 inch for jams and jellies; 1/2 inch for fruit, pickles and tomatoes processed in hot-water bath; and 1 to 1 1/4 inch for low acid foods, vegetables, meats, etc. processed in a pressure canner.

Judging for fruits, vegetables, meat, fish and soups is based on appearance 50% (for natural color, uniform pieces, quality product canned in appropriate and food safe conditions, clear liquid); pack 40% (for well-spaced, attractive, uniform pieces, proper head space); and container 10% (for a perfect seal, complete label including recipe reference, sparkling jar).

Grand Champion and Reserve Grand Champion ribbons may be awarded in each division and age category. At the discretion of the judge, Champion ribbons may be awarded in each division and age category. The Superintendent reserves the right to remove any exhibit deemed unsuitable for display.

Entries identified as a noxious weed will be disqualified and destroyed. Entries will be disqualified if they have insects or do not contain the number of blooms or stems designated in each class.

Flowers should be exhibited with blooms of uniform size, shape and color, straight stems and any natural foliage. Exhibitors must furnish their own containers.

Flowers exhibited should be at the peak of maturity, not wilting, and able to hold up well in the show. Hardening flowers after cutting is important. To prepare exhibit, gather in late afternoon the day before the show, cut stems under water and remove lower foliage with a sharp knife. Plunge immediately up to the neck into warm water for an hour before placing in a cool, dark place (refrigerator 40-50 degrees F) overnight. The morning of the show, 1/2 inch should be removed from the stem. There should be no dead blooms present.

For the exhibits:
Bloom: one individual flower with stem and foliage
Stem: A lengthened flower cluster, such as a Gladiola
Spray: A main stem with side branches and several blooms
Unless noted otherwise each entry should contain 3 stems.
TIP: Pour about 1/4 cup of soda pop into the water in a vase full of cut flowers. The sugar in the soda will make the blossoms last longer. If you have a clear vase and want the water to remain clear, use a clear soda, like Sprite or 7-Up.
