Soup contest set for Feb. 25

GLOVERSVILLE  — The Mohawk Harvest Cooperative Market (Co-op) will be holding a Soup Contest on Sunday, February 25 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the store, located at 30 N. Main St. in Gloversville. 

Prizes will be awarded in each of two categories — vegetarian and non-vegetarian. The prize will be a gift basket from the Co-op that includes handmade pottery bowls, gift and snack items, and a Co-op gift certificate.

The Co-op is looking for soup makers/contestants as well as tasters who will judge the soups for the contest.

For those making a soup for the event, your creation can be vegetarian or include meat, but there must be at least one main ingredient for the soup purchased at the Co-op. 

The Co-op is offering 10 percent off of any ingredients that you buy for your soup if you enter the contest.

Deadline to enter is Feb. 18 and there is a maximum of 15 entrants. Register at the Co-op or to and include email address, phone number and a copy of your recipe–note vegan/vegetarian if applicable.

Soups should be delivered piping hot in a crock pot (at least 4 quarts of soup needed) to the Co-op by 10:30am on Feb. 25; tastings will take place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.. The cost to sample all soups and cast a ballot is $5 per person.
