Attention, slow cooker lovers! It’s that slow cookin’ time of year again! Crock-Pot® Seasoning Mixes invite home cooks across the nation to show off their slow cookin’ skills as the brand kicks off its second annual Crock-Pot™ Slow Cookin’ Recipe Contest. This mouthwatering competition lets enthusiasts show off their culinary talent by submitting their own recipe using one of the Crock-Pot® Seasoning Mixes. The Grand Prize winner gets free groceries valued at $8,500, including Crock-Pot® Seasoning Mixes, for a year! A family cook can become a Slow Cookin’ champ by submitting their one-pot-wonders on the Crock-Pot® Seasoning Mixes Facebook page beginning today. After submitting an original recipe through posts and photos on the page, participants will be encouraged to enlist their friends to vote for their recipe from Oct. 24 to Nov. 14. The winning contestant and their recipe, determined through Facebook votes and input from a panel of B&G Foods judges, will be announced Nov. 21. To encourage this year's entrants, Sherri Williams from Crestview Florida, last year’s Grand Prize Winner, will star in several Crock-Pot® slow cooker demonstration videos. In addition to a year’s free groceries and seasoning mixes, the grand prize winner will have the opportunity to present his or her original recipes and slow cooker usage tips on a dedicated page found on the Crock-Pot® Seasoning Mixes site for three months.
