We’re pleased to share the ‘winners’ from our 2012 version of “Pimp That Preserve!” “Winners’ is in quotes because I think anyone who submitted or was inspired by the ideas this awesome community came up with were all winners.
Just like last year (and as we announced in advance), we name a honorary winner based on who gets the most votes. Because we don’t want to make this a competition on who has the most friends on Facebook, we give away prizes at random (each ‘like’ a photo got counts as a vote so the people who did get more votes have more ballots). We’ve decided to furnish a prize for the honorary winner as well as 3 others.
Dana is working on an original design/ print or piece of art for each of our 4 winners. We’ll send an email to each this week and will ship your piece when it’s complete sometime in the next month (as any preserver knows, a little extra patience is well worth the wait)!
Without further adieu, here’s our winners from 2012!
The People’s Choice with the most votes is this amazing Christmas scene created by Alex (of Plaid Raspberries) – it even lights up!
Our random winners (they were chosen using a random number generator in Excel) begin with Grace’s merit badge:
Next up is Patricia (who almost also won the most ‘LIKES’ as well) with her trio of hot pepper jellies (they look awesome – especially in French!):
Last up is Sean (from Spectacularly Delicious) with his Strawberry Marmite preserves (Dana is a giant Marmite fan but I promise that didn’t influence the random numbers!):

Congrats to everyone – and thank you all for playing along! We’re open to any suggestions or feedback for next year; we’re considering a few tweaks including possibly renaming the contest. We’re all ears!
