In high school I dreamed of winning a state championship… in sports! If you told me in high school that I’d win a state championship, but it would be in cooking, I’d have slugged you. Yet, a year ago my “Smoked Raspberry Salsa” won first prize at the State Fair of Texas. In my opinion, this is the most challenging salsa competition in the world. Winning the State Fair of Texas salsa championship was a big deal (to me, if no one else).
This year I entered three salsas for the State Fair of Texas. My “Four Pepper Picante Sauce” won third prize. My “Cranberry Salsa” earned an honorable mention. And my “Apple Verde Salsa” was awarded first place! Now, I’ve won back-to-back state championships… but in cooking!
Pardon the brag, but darn if it doesn't feel good!
