Spreading Smucker's: Recipe and Essay Contest

My boys love Smucker's jellies, actually so do my husband and I! I'm not very creative in the kitchen, so we normally enjoy our Smucker's jelly on a sandwich, but if you have a recipe with Smucker's as an ingredient, than you want to check out their contest. Currently Smucker's is having their fourth annual Spreading Smucker's Traditions Recipe and Essay Contest. The winner will receive $20,000 towards a dream family reunion!

What a great prize! This contest is definitely worth looking up family recipes.

Last year's winner was Tamie J. She used a recipe passed down from her grandmother called the "Slow Cooker Marmalade Pork Tenderloin." The recipe features Smucker's Sweet Orange Marmalade and has always been an Easter tradition in Tamie's house.

Do you have a winning recipe? If so, here are some of the contest details:

From September 14 to November 16, 2011, Smucker's invites consumers to visit or and share their original recipes made with at least 1/4 cup Smucker's jams, jellies, preserves, or fruit butters, plus an original essay of 200 words or less in English or Spanish about how the recipe is part of family traditions and how it makes family celebrations special. The contest takes place during Hispanic Heritage Month, a time when Latinos across the country celebrate their history and culture. In March 2012, five contest finalists will be selected and flown to New York City for a live recipe demonstration and judging, where only one will win $20,000 towards a dream family reunion.

For Official Contest Rules visit or Open to legal residents of the 50 United States and D.C., 18 years and older. Void where prohibited.

Disclaimer: I received a Smucker's gift basket as a thank you gift for posting about the contest. All opinions are my own.



  1. We love smuckers! Our favorite is the Simply Fruit. I'm not sure we have an award winning recipe though. Putting smuckers simply fruit in plain yogurt for my boys is just about as creative as I get.

  2. We go through a LOT of jelly in this house and Smuckers is our #1 favorite! Thanks for letting us know about this!
