Judge’s Note: All jars must be clean and full to the top, have no trade marks or names on the jar or lid, and be labelled giving contents and date made in full (day/month/year). Preserves must be less than 12 months old and must have new twist tops/lids or cellophane covers. If using a cellophane cover a wax disc must be used, but this is not necessary with a twist top/lid. Preserves containing vinegar must have a twist top/lid only and be at least two months old for showing. Please resist the temptation to open your jars in advance of the show. The judge reserves the right not to test any jar which has been opened before judging.
