Smucker’s wants you to share your favorite family recipe and traditions for the chance to win a $20,000 family reunion with the fourth annual Spreading Smucker’s Traditions Recipe and Essay Contest.

Through November 16, 2011, visit to enter for the chance to win. In March 2012, five contest finalists will be selected and flown to New York City for a live recipe demonstration and judging.

Check out or to share your original family recipes made with at least 1/4 cup of Smucker’s jams, jellies, preserves, or fruit butters, plus an original essay of 200 words or less in English or Spanish about how the recipe is part of your family traditions and how it makes family celebrations special.
Last year’s winning recipe, savory “Slow Cooker Marmalade Pork Tenderloin,” came from Tamie J. of Prosper, Texas. The recipe, which was passed down from her grandmother, features Smucker’s Sweet Orange Marmalade and has always been an Easter tradition at Tamie’s house.

“The smell of sweet, tangy pork always evokes wonderful memories of Easter hats, egg hunts and family meals,” said Tamie. “Food is closely tied to family memories and Smucker’s has been a part of our lives for as long as I can remember. Recently my family created some new memories together and enjoyed sampling my winning recipe during our Grand Prize family reunion.”

In honor of the fourth year of the contest, the Smucker family has reached into their own recipe box to share a special dish that always gets rave reviews during Smucker family get togethers. Citrus Apple Tart features family-favorite flavors like fresh red apples and a warm Orange Marmalade glaze.
