I used a random number generator to pick the 1 winner of the guava jam or goiabada from the contest a few days ago. The number generator picked # 17, or “Sonia” our lucky winner for the day. Sonia, please email me to confirm your email address and we can figure out a way to get you the bottle of jam.
To be totally, totally honest, I ran the random number generator and got #21, or “Footloose”. Most folks wouldn’t believe the results if I posted that, since Footloose is such a prolific and steady guest on the site, but I was planning to send BettyQ and Footloose a bottle of jam or jelly anyway (since BettyQ said she could arrange to get the bottle to her in Vancouver), and I am hoping to piggyback one bottle which might kindly mail to Footloose somewhere in North America as well. BettyQ and Footloose win the current invented award of “loyal longtime readers and commenters” so they get guava jelly as well.
In addition, Nacho, Betchay and Greens Blossoms all get some guava jelly as well. That stemmed from a private request a few weeks ago, and the reason I actually made up another batch of guava jelly after scouring markets for the last of the season’s native guava supply it seems…
So in summary:
# 17 : Sonia, you get a bottle of goiabada!!
BettyQ : A bottle of guava jelly
Footloose : A bottle of guava jelly (if I can piggyback on BettyQ’s courier)
Nacho, Betchay and Greens Blossoms : A bottle of guava jelly as well.
Thanks to all for participating in the “raffle”. I was planning to raffle off a mangosteen jam after I made a few bottles and tried to buy 100+ kilos more of mangosteen but the prices suddenly shot up and quality suffered, so I never got to do a large batch of mangosteen jam again…
