The Apple Fest in Buena Vista at the Historic Turner Family Farm always has a pie contest! Once the winner is determined, slices of pie are sold as a fundraiser for Buena Vista Heritage.
All the pies entered in the pie contest...
The reason Ruth's pie won? "It was the true old fashioned look to her pie. The crust was a perfectly rich goldenbrown and not oily looking; it just looked like something grandma would have made for family supper."
"Once cut..the aroma of sweet fresh apples and light cinnamon and spice was the main reason why the pie was the winner, plus texture of the crust, cooked and flaky-crispy all the way through, even the bottom crust.... and the consistancy of the filling was well balanced with perfect amount of apples and not overly thicken."
Ruth said, "I've always been told my pies are good!" And when asked more about the pie, including the type of apples used, Ruth said, "Lodi apples from our yard. We didn't have a good year this year. We donated most of them to the rancher down the road for his horses. But I found just enough good ones to use in my pie!"
Here Ruth receives a couple of cookbooks as her prize for winning.
Congratulations Ruth from Eagle Country 104!
