The Vindicator: The 27th Apple Dessert Recipe Contest sponsored by White House Fruit Farm in Canfield took place March 27. Winners were Joyce Brooks of Salem, first place for her Apple Pecan Cheesecake; Gwen Vela of Enon Valley, Pa., second for her Apple Caramel Walnut Pie; and Ginny Perkins of Columbiana, third for her New England Apple Pudding. Each received apples for a year and a gift certificate. Sharing the happy moment are, from left, Vila, Debbie Pifer of White House Fruit Farm and Brooks. Entry fees were matched by the farm and donated to Second Harvest Food Bank along with 72 bushes of apples.
