Embrace York County produce with Seasonal Recipe Contest

McClatchy Newspapers -- Grilled swordfish rolls with asparagus.

For cooking and baking enthusiasts, what’s more exciting than the availability of fresh, local fruits and vegetables?

To embrace the growing season in York County, the York Daily Record/Sunday News and Smart magazine have launched a Seasonal Recipe Contest, which will run May through October.

Each month, we will challenge readers to enter a recipe using a seasonal fruit or veggie of our choice. We’ll ask that you make the recipe and take a photo of it for us to share on SmartMagPA.com and Pinterest. Random winners will be chosen in fruit and vegetable categories and will receive $25 gift cards.

Email your recipe and photo to lzaleski@ydr.com by May 31. It must be an original photo. If the recipe is adapted, please include the original source. Also include your full name, age, the municipality in which you live and your telephone number.

This means the staff can post it on their site and pin it to their “Recipes” board, which would have a click-through URL back to the site, therefore increasing traffic, which should be the aim of most journalistic boards in the first place.
