Unicoi Preserves founders Suzy & Clark Neal took home the First Place and Consumer Choice Awards at the 10th Annual Jekyll Island Shrimp and Grits Amateur Cooking Competition on September 19th. Their recipe for Good Enough Shrimp and Grits with Candied Bacon included their Georgia Apple Cider Pepper Spread and four other Georgia Grown ingredients.
This is the second award Unicoi Preserves has received for their Apple Cider Pepper Spread. Earlier this year, they were awarded as a finalist at the Flavor of Georgia, an annual food contest hosted by the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences with the support of the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
Unicoi Preserves products are the Neals’ home recipes, made by hand in small batches. Using locally sourced fruit grown in their mountain region and picked at the peak of ripeness allows all varieties of their products to be flavorful and low in sugar with no artificial ingredients. Unicoi Preserves is proud to be a Georgia Grown company.
