CANADA - A communications specialist with Manitoba Pork Council reports a new internet based contest designed to strengthen the public's awareness of pork is generating a considerable amount of interest, writes Bruce Cochrane.

In an effort to build the awareness pork and highlight its ease of cooking and versatility during the holiday season Manitoba Pork Council has launched a new contest.

The Twelve Day of Christmas Holiday Giveaway is being promoted through Winnipeg media, on the Manitoba Pork Council web site and through Facebook and Twitter.

Laura Kunzelman, a communication specialist with Manitoba Pork Council, says as part of the giveaway 12 winners will be awarded holiday fresh pork packs valued at 100 dollars each.

We just wanted to do something fun this Christmas, get people cooking with pork and try new recipes that maybe they wouldn't try during the holidays.

Everyone is eligible to participate.

You get one entry per person or email address and to enter you can visit ManitobaPork.Com and under the recipes tab you will find an entry form.

Just fill it out there.

We have dozens of recipes on our Pork Council web site.

There's different sections ranging from barbecue recipes to slow cooker and then there's our holiday recipes page.

On the holiday page we have 10 recipes and they range from a pork loin stuffed with dried fruit, rice and almonds to sweet and sour pork cocktail meatballs perfect for appetizers for your Christmas dinner to dinner.

We can teach you to make your own crown roast if you're not too intimated by it.

It's so easy to prepare and there's even some instructional videos.

Ms Kunzelman notes the 12 Days of Christmas Holiday Giveaway has been running for just over one week and has already received hundreds of entries.

She notes the fist four winners will be selected tomorrow but entries are being accepted until close of business Monday, 16 December, when the final four winners will be drawn.

To enter visit the Manitoba Pork Council web site at ManitobaPork.Com.
