Soup contest planned

GLOVERSVILLE — The Mohawk Harvest Cooperative Market will be holding a soup contest from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Feb. 24 at the store, 30 N. Main St. The prizes will be awarded in each of two categories — vegetarian and non-vegetarian. The co-op is looking for soup makers/contestants as well as tasters who will judge the soups for the contest, according to a news release.

For those making a soup for the event, soup can be vegetarian or include meat, but there must be at least one main ingredient purchased at the co-op. The co-op is offering a 10 percent discount for any ingredients purchased for a soup if entering the contest. The deadline to enter is Feb. 17, and there will be a maximum of 15 entrants. The soup makers can register at the co-op or by e-mail to [email protected] and should include e-mail address, phone number, and a copy of soup recipe — note vegan/vegetarian if applicable.

The soups should be delivered “piping” hot in a crock pot (at least four quarts of soup are needed) to the co-op by 10:30 a.m. Feb. 24. The cost to sample all soups and cast a ballot is $5 per person.
