Various fresh dairy products

Lancaster Farming invites readers to email their favorite dairy recipes for the annual June Dairy Month Recipe Drawing to AHARNISH@LANCASTERFARMING.COM.

This event salutes dairy farmers everywhere for their hard work in providing milk and the many wonderful dairy products that produce culinary delights, and to encourage the use of dairy products.

This year we are requiring all recipes and photos to be submitted via email no later than June 10 — the sooner the better!

Ten cash prizes will be awarded to entrants, ranging from $25 to $100.

Read the following instructions carefully to qualify for entry in the annual June Dairy Month Recipe Drawing:

To enter the drawing, select your favorite recipe, which must include a substantial amount of at least one dairy product. The following ingredients count as a dairy product: milk, cream, sour cream, whipped cream, butter, yogurt, buttermilk, dry milk, ice cream, and all hard and soft cheeses.

Margarine and non-dairy substitutes such as Cool Whip do not qualify as dairy products.

Dairy recipes are needed for appetizers, soups, breads, main dishes, vegetables, desserts, beverages, snacks and salads. Clearly print or type your recipe entry. Be sure to give accurate measurements, temperatures, cooking and baking times, sizes of baking dishes, and other beneficial information. We reserve the right to disqualify entries if these guidelines are not followed.

With your entry, include a few sentences about yourself, your family or anecdotes about the recipe. Although it is not required, an emailed photo of you or your family is preferred. We and our readers love to “see” the people who send in the recipes.

Only one entry per family is allowed. This contest is for adults who are 18 years and older. We require this age because children who email in recipes often miss measurements, ingredients or parts of the instructions.

Email your recipe, photo and accompanying information with your complete address; otherwise we cannot mail your prize if you win. Every year, several people forfeit receiving prizes because they did not include their mailing addresses.

Recipe entries will be printed throughout June. The last day the recipe submissions will be accepted is the deadline of June 10. The Pennsylvania dairy princess will select the winners through a random drawing and a listing of the winners will appear in the July 16 issue of Lancaster Farming.

Email your entry and photo to AHARNISH@LANCASTERFARMING.COM (if you do not have internet access, mail it to Anne Harnish, Lancaster Farming Dairy Drawing, P.O. Box 609, Ephrata, PA 17522).
