This year an important rule change will affect recipes for the Honey Culinary competition. Kentucky State Fair Honey Culinary judge Jill True notes that the Honey Culinary competition is for recipes featuring honey as a primary ingredient. Accordingly, a recipe that lists honey as a primary ingredient must be submitted with the entry. True emphasizes that the amount of honey in these recipes must be higher than that of all other sugars combined. So, if a recipe contains two cups of sugar and one tablespoon of honey, the entry does not meet this contest requirement.
