A couple of weeks ago, y’all saw me hard at work on my pepper jellies and fig preserves. Well, the hard work paid off.
When I picked up my preserves and jellies, I was stunned and amazed to find I’d received an Honorable Mention, a Fifth Place, and two Second Place honors.
Those awards alone are exciting in their own right. So, when I saw that I’d received an award for my Hobnobbin’ Gold Pepper Jelly, I was overwhelmed!
You could have bowled me over when I saw a blue First Place ribbon attached to that little jar!
What a hoot and an honor to be able to tell my friends they are eating award-winning jelly! Bet they never would have guessed it!
