Green Tomato Cook-Off Results

by Claudia Slovacek

Although it was a smaller turnout for the 10th annual Green Tomato Cook-off, the results of the cooks just keep getting better each year. We added a fourth category this year for dishes made with a MN produce/product and then blended it with the original three categories of sweets, savories and sauces/condiments.

Sue Hunter Weir walked off with $100 as her prize for best of show with her Tomato Feta Pie (little triangles of phyllo hugging a delicious concoction of feta and green tomatoes). Stop by the 12th and 13th Avenue Community Garden sometime at 2727 12th Avenue and maybe Sue will share her recipe.

Other winners included: Savories: First: Caryl Barnes – Parsnip, apple, ginger soup. Second: Dan Reddan – Pork stew with green tomatoes. Sweets: First – Sue Hunter Weir – Zucchini/Cranberry Bundt Cake. Second – Marcella Strand – Green Tomato muffins. Sauces/Condiments: First – Kellie Larson – Pickled Green Tomatoes.

Sincere thanks go to Pastor Patrick and St. Paul”'s Evangelical Lutheran Church for hosting us, Paul and Sue Weir for providing ribbons and dinnerware and Dan Reddan for providing the ever delectable fried green tomatoes and fried catfish, brown rice, and additional prizes. Kellie Larson also helped with the fried tomatoes. Special thanks go to our judges this year: Ruth Holmgren, Tanya Weinblatt and Mark Eggen. Additional thanks go to all the other attendees who helped set up, tear down and most importantly, brought their appetites to be treated by the cook”'s tasty dishes.

Start practicing now for next year”'s contest.
