15th Annual Peach Pie Contest 2017 at the Collingswood Farmers' Market

The 15th annual Peach Pie contest was held on Saturday, August 5, 2017, at the Collingswood Farmers' Market.  I was invited to be a judge/blogger/commenter and once again I took my duties very seriously!  After last years' two pie contests, I was prepared for some serious sugar high crashing so I ate a protein smart breakfast and drank plenty of water.  Part of my strategy was to take only small bites, to make careful notes, and to smell and observe the pies so I didn't over-indulge.  I planned well. You would be surprised at how difficult a job it is to be a food taster for a contest.  I have a new found respect for the folks who do this.  It's not as glamorous as one would think but it can be fun.  This year's peach pie contest was good time.  We had 10 entries this year, down 1 from last year.  We were planning on 20 entries.  My taste buds were relieved.  With only 10 pies to judge, we had a clear case of almost everyone was a winner.  This was especially true…
