Time for the winners!
Thanks to everyone who read the interview with Sherry Gore, author of Taste of Pinecraft: Glimpses of Sarasota, Florida’s Amish Culture and Kitchens. What fun it was to get Sherry’s inside take on this unique community. Also really enjoyed reading your comments and great questions.
Before we roll out the winners, I asked Sherry if she could share a recipe and story from Taste of Pinecraft. The following bit is originally excerpted from the Pinecraft Pauper, and was written by founder Daniel Fisher, with a recipe from Pinecraft local Sadie Hochstetler. I’ve never heard of “Fluffy Pumpkin Pie” but with the recipe calling for 24 large marshmallows I have no doubt that it is!
And here are the five winners of a copy of Taste of Pinecraft, chosen at random using random.org. If you left more than one comment that is great, but I just counted the first one for contest purposes:
comment #201, Tammy Graham
#25, Janet Rader
#42, Joann R
#203, Dianne Kerchner
Congratulations to all. Winners, please send the address where you’d like the book shipped (send to me at firstname.lastname@example.org) and I’ll pass along to Sherry.
If you didn’t win, you can pick up a copy of the book at Sherry’s site. Also, if you would like to get a further fix of Pinecraft, Katie Troyer (author of the mounties photo above and fishing photo below) shares photos and writes about life in that community here.
Finally, be sure to check back as there are about 5 more giveaways of other books scheduled for the next couple-few months.
And how about one more excerpt and recipe, before we go?
