Do you have an old family recipe for scratch-made biscuits? How about a mouth-watering recipe full of fresh blueberries?

Whether it’s jam, muffins, cake or cookies, bring them on: the NC Cooperative Extension, Dare County Center is looking for heritage recipes that have been passed down over the years – beloved baked goods that never fail to put a smile on the faces of family and friends.

Those who have such a recipe are invited to enter the Biscuits and Blueberries Contest as part of Dare Days in downtown Manteo. Pre-registration is not required, just bring the item(s) to the Magnolia Pavilion (at the foot of the Cora Mae Basnight Bridge that crosses into Roanoke Island Festival Park) between 9:30 and 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 4, 2022. There is no cost to enter and winners will be announced during the festivities.

This event is sponsored by the Dare County Cooperative Extension Service. For more information, contact Dee Furlough, family and consumer sciences Extension agent, at 252-473-4290.
