Former President Jimmy Carter gave First Place to this zippy salsa at the Plains Peanut Festival in his Georgia hometown. Mother-daughter team Lane and Elizabeth McCloud came up with the recipe just days before the competition. “Although we weren’t allowed in the judging room, we later saw a tape of President Carter tasting our salsa and saying, ‘Mmmmmm… that’s good,‘“ says Lane, who lives in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. “Elizabeth was only 9 at the time, but it’s a day she’ll never forget.“ —Lane McLoud, Siloam Springs, Arkansas
