Oh how I love a giveaway! Remember the spiced jam post from last week? Well, the very sweet Carla Kissel has offered to give away a mixed case of 6 jars of her fantabulous spiced jam! SWEET! They make great hostess gifts, or delicious to snarf down yourself. Leave your entries by Friday, September 4th at noon central time. I will choose the winner by random later that afternoon.

Here are some ways to enter…pick all, or just one:

• Visit Kissel’s website, and check out the 6 flavors. Leave a comment below with the flavor that looks the tastiest to you…

• For an extra entry, twitter about it, and come back to leave another comment to let me know that you did…{you can do this up to 5 times total}

• For another entry, write about it in your blog…and come back here to comment…

• Subscribe to nonpareil…and let me know in a comment…

• Head on over to Kissel’s and order some jams from their online shop, and you will get 5 extra entries…again, leave comments so I can keep track…

Any questions, contact me! {This contest is only open to my U.S. readers…sorry to all you lovely readers around the world…}

We love jams in our house. The Cherry Fennel sounds yummy to me. That’s a selfish choice too because I’m the only one in our home that’s a fennel/licorice lover.

I subscribed to your blog.
