Another year of Pimp That Preserve is over!
I want to send a giant thank you to all of you who participated – giant thanks to you for decorating jars, voting, sharing and cheering each other on. I`m particularilly proud of how this community supports one another and saw plenty of `competitors`openly voting for other people`s jars and sharing encouragement. It`s been a particularly exciting year for us – from Mario Batali retweeting our message about Pimp That Preserve, to the staggering amount of entries and almost 1,500 votes, we were really blown away by your responses.
It`s time to divvy up the prizes and, while we`re excited to be naming some prize winners, we really all hope you had fun and enjoyed. You`re all winners in our eyes (I know I`m a cheeseball).
Without further delay, let`s start with the random prizes:
Prize 1 – We Sure Can (book) by Sarah B. Hood (includes a few recipes from us)
The winner of this is Marilla from Cupcake Rehab. She submitted her pimped up Champagne Jelly
Prize 2 – Autographed Copy of Hip Girls Guide to Homemaking
The winner of this is Kate (Snowflake Kitchen). Her branded jars got people talking (as did her glittery pickle on a jar of pickels as part of a seperate entry):
Prize 3 – Archival Print of the Periodic Table of Waterbath Preserving
Laura Watt from Cubit`s Organic Living for her rockin`cider jars:
Grand Prize – Bragging Rites
Amy of the Lamm Farm wins for having the most votes on any photo – and we love the story that comes with these fabulous jars (she grew the lavendar that`s on the inside and outside of the jar). We`ve decided to donate an extra copy of our archival poster so Amy will walk away with a memory of her moment in the sun!
To see all the entries, flip through our FaceBook album (you don`t need an account to see them) – and thank you to everyone who joined in! We hope you`ll join in again next year!
