Bot­tling back at Na­timuk Show

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

A prize for a new sec­tion in a jams and pre­serves sec­tion of Na­timuk’s 125th show will have the re­gion’s bot­tlers and pre­servers work­ing over­time.

Pre­serv­ing com­pany Fowlers, long as­so­ci­ated with peo­ple mak­ing the most of sea­sonal fruit and veg­eta­bles, is do­nat­ing a Fowlers pre­serv­ing kit as first prize.

The firm is also pro­vid­ing a pre­serv­ing book for the sec­tion ‘Cre­ative pre­sen­ta­tion of four items’ from the Na­timuk Show jams and pre­serves sched­ule.

Na­timuk Show is on from 9am to 9pm on Satur­day.

Show jams and pre­serves ste­ward Meg Slee­man said the chance to win would come down to en­tries where at least two items were pre­served us­ing the Fowlers method.

“An an en­try could in­clude a bot­tle of apri­cots and a bot­tle of toma­toes pre­served us­ing the Fowlers method, as well as an or­di­nary bot­tle of to­mato sauce and per­haps a jar of jam,” she said.

“The cre­ative pre­sen­ta­tion is only limited by the imag­i­na­tion, and any items listed in the show sched­ule jams and pre­serves sec­tion can be in­cluded.

“Many peo­ple re­mem­ber the rows of beau­ti­ful pre­serves and fruit in our moth­ers’ and grand­moth­ers’ kitchens. Now the clock is turn­ing full cir­cle, and pre­serv­ing is be­com­ing ever more pop­u­lar as peo­ple re­alise both the fi­nan­cial and health ben­e­fits of pre­serv­ing sea­sonal fruit and veg­eta­bles so we can en­joy them year-round.

“This is a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to let your imag­i­na­tion loose and win your own Fowlers’ kit as well as a pre­serv­ing book with ideas for what to do with the kit.”

Na­timuk Show fea­tures a va­ri­ety of at­trac­tions and will end with a fire­works dis­play.
