It was a long, tough battle, but the votes are in. The winner of the latest A&M Smackdown is (drumroll, please) Amanda, with her Roasted Tomato Jam

But since we are of the opinion that in our contests, everyone is a winner, we wanted to hear from both of our finalists. Here are Amanda and Merrill, with a few words on the heated competition. And we'll start taking votes, now -- what do you think they should go head-to-head over next? Let us know in the comments. 

Merrill: As usual, the A&M Smackdown was fraught with both joy and heartache. We both gave it our all, and in the end the better contestant was victorious. (And I will concede that Amanda's jam is pretty amazing.) We're now 2-2, so the next one's the tiebreaker!

Amanda: I tasted Merrill's golden tomato salad, and I think you're all mistaken! Plus I sort of enjoyed my underdog status. But now -- next year -- the pressure is on! Can you let us know the theme so I can start preparing?
