Much like the Summer, PEPPERMEISTER’S Pick a Pic of Peppers Contest has come to an end.

I want to thank everyone who entered.  My wife and I looked at dozens of entries and narrowed it down to 3 finalists.  Here are the results…..

Grand Prize Winner: LK from Trying Not to be Fat!!! LK submitted this amazing pic of her own chile vodka.  I know why my wife loved it, but we both agree that LK’s creativity, photo quality, and pepper-usage had the makings of a prestigious pepper photo champion.  Congrats LK, enjoy your Stainless Steel Pepper Roaster!

2nd Place Winner: Tim Sheets. Tim regularly contributes chile advice and info on GardenWeb’s Hot Pepper forum.  Tim submitted this peculiar photo featuring one lonely cayenne pepper.  Beautiful shot Tim! Read below for your prize info…

Tim wins a Chile Pepper Taco Holder! Because… how else is Tim going to hold his tacos?

Not bad for 2nd place.

3rd Place Winner: Monica Mooney from Sweet Heat ChefsMonica and her daughter, Jasmine, feature amazing recipes on their site.  If you don’t believe me, ask Rachael Ray and Guy Fieri.  Monica’s fiery pic of charred poblanos made my mouth water and long for some tasty stuffed chiles.  Monica’s photo (featured below) has earned her a 3.5 oz. Lindt Dark Chili Chocolate bar which is appropriately filled with sweetness and heatness.  Congrats Monica!

Honorable Mention: Linda Roper.  Linda’s photo below displays a scary 7 pot chile.  This super hot pepper is as mean as it looks.

Linda, along with everyone who entered the contest, can receive free pepper seeds!  If you’ve submitted pics and would like to receive free pepper seeds, send your mailing address to thepeppermeister@yahoo.com
