As the name suggests, ii is exceptionally seasonal, very tasty and Ihe whole batch can be made within the space of a few hours. Mrs Alice J ergons of Algona is a lady who made a big hit with the judges. Not only did she submit her Watermelon Pickle recipe, she also sent along a sample of the product! This had a very favorable influence on the judges and should be encouraged, we think. Unfortunately, there were two other watermelon recipes sent by Mrs Knut Oppedahl, Ottosen and Mrs Georgia Thaves, Algona that were so much like Mrs Jergen's that we didn't dare give her the money. By far the greatest number of entries were for Sweet Pickles. Recipes for 14 Day pickles were sent by Mrs Joe Kenne, Irvington and Mrs Sylvester Arndorfer. Mrs Arndorfer also sent a 9 day variety as did Mrs Knut Oppedahl and Mrs Ray E. Hansen, Tilonka. Sweet Pickles in slices are favored by Mrs Victor L. Mueller of Ventura with her Ice Sweet Pickle recipe and Mrs George Banman, Lakota with her Crispies recipe. Mrs Lauren Thompson of Lakota makes an Open Jar Sweet Pickle. Dill pickles are always a favorite. Mrs : Emil Bierstedt q>f Fenton uses spices and horseradish root in her dill pickles and Mrs Margaret Fraser of Cylinder has a recipe in which the pickles are ready to eat after 3 weeks, using a cold brine. Mrs Frank Sterling sent two dill recipes—one using grape leaves and one in which you place the filled jars in boiling water and let it cool. Pickle relish recipes came from Mrs George Gengler of Whittemore and Mrs Margaret Fraser of Cylinder. Gladys Barker of Cedar Rapids sent an unusual relish recipe. It uses ripe tomatoes, peaches, pears, apples and spices. Mrs Lauren Thompson of Lakota sent a relish recipe to be used as a sandwich spread. Bread and Butter Pickle recipes came from Audrey Frye, Algona; Mrs Emil Bierstedt, Fenton and Vivian Dutton, Burt. Georgia Thaves sent a Ripe Cucumber recipe and also a Mustard Dill. Mrs Arthur Trauger of Algona sent a recipe for Love Apples. That's what they used to call tomatoes, you know, and it uses small, whole green ones. Mrs Trauger writes, "This recipe has been in the Trauger family many years, originally coming from Canada.". There" was such a good recipe for Peach Pickles sent by Audrey Frye, Algona and Mrs Harm Helmers sent a fine Beet Pickle recipe. Mrs Clayton Ditsworth, P'enlon has a good recipe for Spiced Plums and Mrs Lawrence Kirsch of Whittemore tempted the judges with her Fresh Pear Pickles. The prize winning recipe for this week, End Of The Garden Pickles appears on our special recipe contest page. The messages from the sponsoring Algona Merchants are also on the page. Next week's contest will feature salad dressing recipes and promises to be a big one. We already have four entries, but the deadline is Monday, Sept. 12 at 4 p.m., so you have plenty of time to submit your favorite salad dressing.
