ANGELINA COUNTY, TX (KTRE) -

Judges at the Angelina County Youth Fair tasted a variety of salsas on Thursday, and it was anything but mild.

It's the 69th year the fair has been held, but this is the first time for the salsa, jam, and jellies competition.

Many who entered say they were torn between green or red.

"I think it's a lot of fun because some kids don't like to bake, but there's lots of different aspects of cooking, and so, salsa and jam and jellies are kind of a lost art," said Kate Rudasill, a judge. "It's something I grew up doing with my parents because they can, and you can do a lot of things like that, but a lot of people don't know how to do it anymore because it's easy to buy salsa from the store, but homemade salsa is some of the best."

Entries for the competition was open to not only youth but adults as well.

The fair will continue through Saturday.
