Community Picks -- Grapes

October 25, 2012

Once again, we want to give a big thanks to all of our volunteer recipe testers for your thoughtful comments and for helping us continue to strengthen our recipe recommendations. You can read the winning headnote and tester's comments by clicking through to the Community Picks recipes — the comments are at the top. And even if the recipe you tested wasn't chosen as a CP, please feel free to leave your testing notes in the recipe's comments section. Constructive criticism is always encouraged!

Congrats to all the CPs! Thanks to the editors and especially cookinginvictoria for such a lovely review. So glad you enjoyed my recipe, Paula!

I'm so sorry to see that my review of Dabblings' Chai-Spiced Pickled Grapes was not included. I really like them! I will post the review I wrote and sent in well before the deadline to the recipe itself, as well as some additional observations. Congrats to all those whose recipes were selected! ;o)

It's a tough job picking the recipes awarded with CPs -- we wish we could choose every one! Do know that all reviews are thoughtfully read and taken into consideration, though. And please do post your review to the recipe page! I'm sure many will benefit from it.

What are the criteria for selecting which will be included and which ones will not? ;o)

We look for recipes that get positive reviews from testers -- as close to across the board as possible. This includes all community testers, and our testers as well.

I appreciate the fact that it was even nominated for a community pick. So few are. And if I got a person who typically doesn't like grapes to enjoy them in a new way then all the better!
