    I'd definitely volunteer to make Masala soda, except, I love the drink so much, It not going to come across as objective!

    I am going to have to bow out of testing the Masala Lemon soda. I tried at failed to find Chaat Masala this weekend... :( So sorry...Devangi, it looks so interesting and tasty!

    I thought the entries to this contest were consistently outstanding (last one too) so I'm excited to be on the list with all the highly deserved picks. I've already made a few over the last week -- all winners!

    Seriously. I am going to have to start setting an alarm or something. People here are quick. Like ninja-quick. Sigh. I guess I'll just have more time to spend on chili-making. My husband is overjoyed at this week's theme.

    This will be my virgin voyage with kumquats, but if it's still available, I'll test the kumquat shaker pie. That said, any advice on discerning a bad kumquat from a bad one.

    Hi cheese1227, I just called the shaker pie half a second before you, but if you'd like to test it, you can take it! Although, I have no good advice at all about discernig good from bad kumquats!

    Thanks fiveanspice. But I'll just check in next time. On a different note, are you still in the Boston neighborhood. I am moving to the Portland ME area this summer. I've been lucky enough to have the DC Food52 group not too far down the road. And I am wondering if there is a similiar group up in the Boston area. Yes, I'll still be two hours from Boston, but those are my old stomping grounds so I'd love to make the trek any time, especially if there is the promise of good food and fun.

    Gotcha! I wasn't sure if you meant too late for testing, or too late for getting help with choosing kumquats! And, yes, there's a crew of us in Boston! We would love to have you come and join us whenever we get together. And some of my best friends (and mind blowingly good cooks) live in Portland! What a great city!!!! You're going to adore it. Amazing food there too, for a small place!

    kumquats are squishy if they're bad or dry and shriveledy.

    It looks like HLA's shaker kumquat pie is left, is that right? If so I'd love to test it please! I'm always looking for kumquat ideas. Ok, well not technically always, but right now i am!

    I just realized I could make a beverage even while traveling, so I'll take the Meyer Lemon and Thyme Caipirinha.

    I'll take the "It Takes a Village" Rice Pudding, please. Foraging doesn't get any more local than reaching out your back door to the Meyer lemon tree standing right by it. Thank you. ;o)

    By the time I got back to site it looked like everything has been taken. I'll check back another time. Thanks for the explanation of the "rules" - I'm a newbie at this.
