Prize winning marmalade !

I am a happy bunny today !
As I had a weekend free fom markets, I decided to enter Sparrowpit Show. This is a little village show about 3 miles away. Despite there being classes for sandwich cakes and quiches i decided to have a rest from baking and just enter the preserves and craft classes. I entered my Strawberry & Apple Jam, Mixed Fruit Chutney, Three-Fruit Marmalade and also a crochet doiley in the Craft section. It was good to see quite a few entries in all classes -- shows the art of home baking & preserve making is not yet dead !
When I went back after the judging, I was thrilled to see my marmalade had won FIRST PRIZE !! I was disappointed that my chutney & jam had not even been placed but competition was obviously keen !
