Recipes were evaluated on taste, presentation

and use of sorghum by a sorghum farmer, registered dietitian, chef, consumer and Doug Bice. Grand-prize winner Pam Correll said cooking with

sorghum was a new venture for her, and she found it to be extremely adaptable. “You can use it for most anything—breakfast, lunch,

supper, snacks—any time of day,” Correll said. Inspired by sorghum’s diverse applications, Correll

said she has already begun sharing her new-found excitement with her friends and family. She said she encourages others to find sorghum and experiment with various dishes in their own kitchens. “I really think sorghum is on the cusp of becoming

popular and trendy if we can get enough people to find out about it,” Correll said. “There’s no doubt sorghum will be a staple in my house from now on.” To view the winning recipes and download 2015 Sorghum Showdown Recipe
