August 3, 2022
In one of the sweeter decisions of their lives, judges sliced into the task of picking the best berry pie entered in this year's Bear-y Pie contest last Wednesday on the first day of BearFest.
Thirteen pies and pie-style dessert dishes were submitted to the contest, which was judged on criteria such as appearance, aroma, sweetness, thickness, flakiness and taste.
Entries consisted of thimbleberry, blueberry, pecan, apple, cherry and combinations of blueberry and lemon, thimbleberry and salmonberry, strawberry and rhubarb, and huckleberry and blueberry gelee with a vanilla bean curd layer.
