THE new­est in­dus­try in Mun­dub­bera will be show­cased at the show with the Blue Berry Jam Mak­ing Com­pe­ti­tion.

Fol­low­ing on from the suc­cess of the Mar­vel­lous Mar­malade com­pe­ti­tion held at the Taste of the Bur­nett Fes­ti­val last year, it is hoped that the Mun­dub­bera Show Best Blue­berry Jam com­pe­ti­tion will stir up some in­ter­est in the town’s lat­est agri­cul­tural en­deav­our.

Com­mu­nity Bank Board mem­ber Louise New­man said any­one who would like to be the best jam maker in Mun­dub­bera was en­cour­aged to get in touch with the Mun­dub­bera Com­mu­nity Bank for an en­try form.

“For the other mem­bers of the com­mu­nity who would rather just eat jam there will be a taste-off at the show and ev­ery­one will get a chance to vote for the show goer favourite,” Ms New­man said.

“To ac­com­pany the blue­berry jam there will also be a celebrity burger cook-off at the show that will be show­cas­ing the culi­nary skills of some of the best know com­mu­nity tal­ent.”

The burger cook-offs will be at 11.30am, 12.30pm and 1.30pm.

For more in­for­ma­tion, phone Mun­dub­bera Com­mu­nity Bank on 4165 3798.
