Yakima, WA – Borton & Sons, Inc. held their Annual Office Apple Cook-off today at Noon.  This is such an enjoyable way to explore new recipes and get the office together for some tasty fun!  This year’s contestants were so creative, making it extremely hard to pick the winners.

This year we had 9 entries:

  9. Sweet & Spicy Apple Chile by Jeremy Leavitt, Food Safety & Compliance Manager (Fuji Apples, Golden Delicious Apples for Garnish)

The 4th Generation family Members Byron Borton, Eric Borton and Katie Birley voted on their top 2 favorites while the rest of our office picked their favorite number for a total of three winners.  Congratulations to Josie Garza for taking first place with her Caramel Apple Cheesecake Bars with Streusel Topping, Coleen Malmassari for taking second place with her Fuji Apple Ratatouille served on a garlic crostini, and Jeremy Leavitt for winning the office vote on his Sweet & Spicy Apple Chile.  All entries were incredible and it was really hard to choose a favorite.
