. . .
Do you like molasses? Of course you do. And if you’re from these here parts, you’re probably very familiar with Crosby’s Molasses. I have some in my cupboard right now! I grew up on Crosby’s molasses – we ate it on brown bread, jammed it into gingersnaps, and made Rosie Beaucoup’s famous gingerbread with it. We use big jugs of it at baking school – I got some on my textbook this morning. Heck, Crosby’s molasses has been a major part of every ginger structure I’ve ever slapped together.
So, can you imagine how epically excited I was when Bridget (Marketing Manager for Crosby’s/movita superfan) got in touch to ask if I’d like Crosby’s to sweeten the Ginger 2012 prize pot? That’s right – Crosby’s is so crazy about gingerbread that they wanted to give the winner of Ginger 2012 some extra treats. Here’s the deal: the winner of Ginger 2012 will now receive an additional two books!
Gingerbread: Timeless Recipes for Cakes, Cookies, Desserts, Ice Cream, and Candy (Jennifer Lindner McGlinn)
Crosby’s Molasses Family Favourites Cookbook
ALSO, the runner up for this year’s competition will receive a copy of Crosby’s Molasses Family Favourites as well! That’s some sticky fun right there, people.
Now, you might wanna consider hitting up Crosby’s blog – Molasses and More. Bridget writes for it! Bridget and her crew are basically obsessed with molasses and gingerbread, and there are loads of recipes over there for you to try out. Also, I think you need to watch this video from Crosby’s entitled Grandma Fancy Handles a Dozen Men. It’s basically the story of my life.
Thanks, Bridget! And thanks, Crosby’s! I hope you’ll love this year’s entries as much as I do…
I received zero compensation for this post, peeps. Crosby’s and I are just ridiculously in love with gingerbread.
