Phillipa did make this decision yesterday but I’ve been flat out at work, so apologies for the delay.
“I’ve found the jam discussions intriguing. There are some jams mentioned that I’d love to get my sticky hands on and some that I would probably pass by.
I’ve made a list and had a think and the Lemon Butter Jam is the most unusual in my humble opinion. Lemon butter is made with lemon juice and egg yolks – do you add sugar to this and boil it to get the jam? And why not simply stop at the lemon butter? I would love to see the recipe.
Grape Jam is the runner up – I think you would need some very strongly flavoured grapes to hold their own against the sugar. Third place goes to Ginger and Cumquat, a jam that makes my lips pucker just thinking about it. Fourth place is shared – Purple Yam and the Cactus Jam, both of which perplex me, and the one I’d most love to eat is the Mandarin Jam.
Thank you to all the visitors to Helene’s blog while I’ve been a guest. I’m sure you’ll all enjoy both Border Watch and The Book of Love. Helene will be a guest on my blog in March and I’ll put the signposts up in all the usual places so the post will be easy to find.”
So, that makes our winner, Suzanne Brandyn!!! Yeah, big round of applause. Border Watch will head your way by the end of February.
The runner’s up are – Noreen, Bron, Alexander and Robb. Sala’s wonderful chutney will be winging it’s way to you (not sure how, but it will be!).
So if the winners would like to send me their contact details at firstname.lastname@example.org, I’ll organise to send you your goodies.
A huge thank you to Phillipa and to everyone who dropped in. I’ve had a fabulous week, despite constant hunger pains and severe jam cravings…
Enjoy your weekend.
