The Blueberry Council recognizes the importance of passing on recipes to friends and family to keep traditions alive and incorporating small changes to lead a healthy lifestyle.  With this in mind, this contest challenges you to share an original blueberry recipe with five ingredients or less using fresh, frozen or dried blueberries. First, second and third place winners will be chosen by a panel of food professionals.  The first place winner will receive $1,000; second place will receive $500; third place will receive $250.

Between Sept. 22 and Nov. 10, 2016, submit your recipe here
OR stop by Booth 3021 to hand in your submission at FNCE® 2016!

The fine print:

  • You can enter as many original recipes as you like as long as all rules are observed and you submit separate entries for each recipe.
  • Winners will be notified by phone or email on Dec. 1, 2016, and will also be announced on, on the Blueberries Facebook page, and Blueberries Twitter account.
  • Entrants must be at least 18 years old and must be attendees of FNCE.®
