Sweet, Hard Apple Cider contests seeking entries in Illinois

Sweet apple and hard cider making is well underway, so make sure to pull some samples to submit for the 2019 Sweet and Hard Cider Contests.

The 30th annual Sweet Apple Cider Contest and 17th annual Hard Cider Contest will take place on Thursday, Jan. 9 in conjunction with the Illinois Specialty Crops, Agritourism, and Organic Conference.

For the sweet contest, entrants are asked to submit a one-gallon full container of unclarified apple cider that may be fresh or has been stored frozen.

Hard apple cider contestants are asked to submit a one-quart, but no more than a one-gallon, container of product.
