Student wins lemon butter competition

YEAR 4 student Shelby Rowles will see her lemon butter recipe mass produced after winning the lemon butter competition at the Mundubbera Show.

Miss Rowles said she initially tried making two different recipes before settling on the one she would enter into the competition, which was sponsored by Bendigo Bank.

"We had two samples and we tried both, the first one was very candy, but the second one was the one I made from the show and we entered that and I came first," Miss Rowles said.

"It was the least expected."

The St Joseph's student's recipe will now go into 500 jars and be sold under the Mundubbera Food Company brand.

Bendigo Bank director Paul Dare said there were a large number of entries in this year's competition.

"We had 21 entries which were really good and the different in taste. The tart was amazing," Mr Dare said.

"The crowd has voted and there was a clear winner, which is exciting.

"I just think it's really good that people have embraced the idea.

"The fact that we want to grow it and sell Mundubbera at the same time is such an awesome idea and they've embraced that idea."

Miss Rowles also won $500 from Bendigo Bank.
