Featured Ingredients

This year's theme for the Emergency Kit Cook-Off is "Take Me Out to the Ballgame." The Featured Ingredients are:

  • Cracker Jack®
  • Peanuts (any variety)
  • Canned corn as in "can of corn" or a easy-to-catch fly ball.
  • Potato as in a "tater" or a homerun.
  • Pickled fruits and vegetables (any variety) as in "in a pickle" or a base runner getting trapped in a rundown.

You have now until Sept. 30 to create a recipe that uses at least one of the Featured Ingredients and only nonperishable pantry and emergency kit items, including seasonings, condiments, sweeteners and potable water.

Participants are asked to use manual tools (e.g., can openers and hand whisks) instead of modern appliances in the preparation.

Recipes are accepted year-round at www.EmergencyKitCookOff.org but only those who submit this month will get a Kit Cook-Off apron, while supplies last.

For directions on how to Submit a Recipe, see the Participate tab.
