Hey Guys, Long time no post.
This is a favor for my buddy, Al Goldenberg AKA Buddah. Please check out his auctions. He is a super cool guy, chilehead extraordinaire, and reviewer for Taste the Fear. He has also been honored by CaJohn with a Buddah Collectable. If you don’t know him yet, you had better ask someone. He is a good person to know.
Today it is with all my chutzpah and schtickiness that I have the pleasure of announcing the most amazing preserve EVER…
Buddah’s 2008 Hanukkah Preserves! It has been two months in the making…the glass I used is from the popular Ball® Collection Elite® Platinum Jars and Lids which to me are the best in home canning. In trying to design this special collectible piece, I wanted to elicit help from some of my Jellipals in creating this very unique piece inside and out. Each bottle is very special, and atop each jar I used a blue and white wax seal and finished it off with a golden Happy Buddha statuette. In the spirit of Feng Shui each Buddha represents something special for Safe Travel, Prosperity, Love, Spiritual Journey, a Happy Home, and Long Life. There are only 6 jars with 6 different Buddhas, so each piece is as unique as a collectible can get.
Yet, I did not stop there. Inside this amazing jar is what is even more unbelievable. Through my online research, a recipe procurred from my dear friend Sandi, and the tutelage and guidance from the ever-capable CaJohn of CaJohn Fiery Foods my preserves came to fruitition. I have created a Cherry Jalapeno Preserve that I hope not only will be unique, but a delicious taste experience. Even though I was born Jewish, do not think that these preserves are kosher in anyway other than the fact that I made them. The darkest of purple jelly-like contents is almost black to the naked eye which gives the jar a great appearamce that will look fantastic on any collector’s shelf. The label was an artistic creation from the one and only Gatorman, and I am so proud to have it on my jars.
This one time collection will be sold on Ebay starting at sunset(6pm est) on December 21st on the first night of Hanukkah and will be concluded at sunset December 28th. 6 Auctions in all. I will let my Jellipals determine the value in these tough economic times as each auction will be set at 1 penny to start. Shipping will be sent via USPS with insurance at a cost of $10. Every collectible will come with an 8 oz sampler, so you can feel the love on your bagels, blintzes, and kasha varnishkes.
I have included pics of all 6 jars. Links will be posted when the auctions go live on Sunday 6pm est/3pm pst.
Enjoy it and FEEL KOSHER!
