Easy Cranberry Walnut Pie – Part Pie, Part Bar Cookie, All Tasty!

Sharing is caring!

I had a vision. When I started brainstorming about this post, I thought, “What would make a better Thanksgiving dessert than combining some of my favorite flavors into a cranberry walnut pie?”

Alas, recipe attempt #1 was a complete bomb. It turned out way too sweet, and the texture was just wrong. The rest of the family refused to eat it, so I ended up eating pie for a week. Ugh. Thankfully, round two went much better. I ended up with a pie/bar cookie hybrid that goes together without a fuss. The “secret ingredient” raspberries add a little extra natural sweetness so you can cut back on the sugar and win over those who may not be big cranberry lovers. Cranberries have some natural pectin (which is why cranberry sauce sets up), but adding cornstarch gives the filling a more velvety texture. If you don't have raspberries available, you can substitute diced pear or apple.

Husband and boys both gave it a thumbs up, and as much as I like pie and this version is tasty, I'm relieved that I won't be eating it for an entire week.

  1. I’ve been watching all the cranberries on sale lately at the grocery store and wanting to make something other than cranberry sauce on Thanksgiving, this looks delicious and I could try it out and then serve it at Thanksgiving also….after I taste tested it of course lol. Would love the SousVide, it’s been on my wishlist for a while but way past our budget, but I’ve heard wonderful reviews of it, I am notorious at burning or under-cooking meat.

    1. I have a great cranberry salsa recipe that has oranges in it. It’s really super to have along side roasted pork or any meat, actually. You can probably find it on Coastal Living’s web site. I got it out of their magazine.

  2. This recipe looks amazing, and the giveaway is the best I’ve ever seen on the world wide web! I would love to win any of the prizes, especially the Blendtec or the Excalibur.

  3. Would love to win either the Excalibur or culturing package. I would use the Excalibur for dehydrating my sprouted wheat berries and the culturing package to make butter! Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. I am new to your blog. Great down to earth posts! I would love the blendtec. I’ve been wanting one for a while but it is too expensive for my budget

  5. The Excalibur has been on my wish list for a while and it would get a lot of use here, but so would all the other items, I just can’t pick one!

  6. Love your informative posts! I would love to win the dehydrator or the blender! I think it is great that you are able to do these giveaways!

  7. What a wonderful giveaway. This recipe sounds perfect for our Thanksgiving dinner, and will be on the table this year.

  8. It’s a toss up now, that I’ve read a little more about the SousVide, I wanted the blender at first…now I’m kinda thinking the SousVide would be nice! Not that I wouldn’t take any of them…but I have nice cutting boards, and a dehydrator not to mention that wonderful cheese press already, and while more than one is nice at times…something I don’t have would be nicer! ;-))

  9. This pie is amazing! The Traditional Kitchen Culturing Package would def be my choice! Iโ€™m starting to make my own butter and just roll it into a log but have wished for a mold; Iโ€™ve tried to make cheese & Iโ€™m at the point of being discouraged with it all, but thought I would try a few more times..then I see this wonderful give-away, & Iโ€™m so excited!…

    Read More at http://www.deliciousobsessions.com/2014/11/epic-diy-kitchen-giveaway/ ยฉ Delicious Obsessions

  10. l would prefer The Kitchen Culturing Package! I make butter and have many times wished for a mold, I have tried to make homemade vinegar, and am getting discouraged with my cheese-making abilities. This Giveaway is exciting!…

  11. all of these items are fabulous prized, but if I had to choose just one, I think the SousVide Supreme Demi would be my pick. I just think there are so many wonderful and healthy meals that you can make with it.

  12. Thanks for the chance to win these awesome prizes. I posted on GNOWFLINs the dehydrator would be item of choice, but I would also like to win the Traditional Kitchen Culturing Package. To many choices to choose!

  13. The cranberry walnut pie looks delish, I will add this to my must try recipes for fall. Also, thank you for sponsoring the giveaway!

  14. I would love to win the Blendtec or the Kitchen Culturing Package because I have never had a good blender that will do what I need it to do, and Iโ€™ve always wanted to do culturing but have been too chicken to try it.

  15. Thanks for the giveaway! Your recipe sounds great. I’ve never had a cranberry pie before. We’ll definitely have to try this out. If I had to choose a product I’d pick the Blendtec.

  16. Lusting after the Blentec โ€“ I had the chance at tasting food done up in a Vitamix, it was so smooth and creamy! I canโ€™t wait to get one of these tools in my kitchen. Also the dehydrator โ€“ I used to do my on WAP Crispy Nuts but have stopped since it takes up so much time and space in the oven. Iโ€™d love to get back to them with the dehydrator I used to do my on WAP Crispy Nuts but have stopped since it takes up so much time and space in the oven. Iโ€™d love to get back to them with the dehydrator. All the others – yes please! Give me tools to assist my healthy lifestyle!

  17. hi, can’t wait to eat this pie on thanksgiving and thanks so much for the chance to win such a great giveaway

  18. Now I need pie because I saw that picture lol. I really want the blender or the dehydrator too. I would use the heck out of them. I would use any of it though.

  19. i am borderline diabetic. Is it ok to exchange half or all of the sugar with stevia? Thanks for the great recipe!

    1. Are you talking about the white powder stevia or raw green stevia? The white stuff would work, and you would use less, unless you have the cup for cup type. The green has different baking properties, and you would use a much lesser amount. The oatmeal, nuts and butter should slow down potential blood sugar spikes, and I’m sure you watch your portions of any sweets.

        1. That’s what I’m planning to do, Gary!
          I’m not diabetic, but am following an eating plan that eliminates sugar and primarily replaces it with sugar. I already sent a copy of this recipe to my mom with the notation that it looks like it would convert easily to a low-carb recipe using almond flour and stevia as substitutes for the flour and sugar.
          Here’s a GREAT conversion chart for using stevia products of all sorts:
          http://www.measuringflower.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/stevia_glucomannan.pdf

  20. Thank you for this generous giveaway. I’ve been wanting all three of Blendtek, SousVide and Excalibur. Love cooking, am constantly taking cooking course and am fascinated by sous vide. And I have wanted an Excalibur dehydrator for a long time. But, I think that Blendtek is my first choice. I could make so many gut-lovin’ things with that beauty!

  21. I think I’ll be making this for Thanksgiving! And the blendtech would be awesome to have. We’re looking at getting a new blender, but can’t afford it at the moment

  22. I am super excited by the SousVide Supreme Demi Promo Pack (though all of these prizes are fantastic); I am so interested in this style of cooking and I want to learn how to do it.

  23. The SousVide package would be a dream addition to my kitchen. I started braching out and growing more of our own food the last two years and am loving it! we are going to double the garden this spring.

  24. Any of the items would be wonderful! I think the Excalibur dehydrator would be the most helpful and useful right now because it’d be nice to have dehydrated fruits veggies etc. The Blendtec would also be really helpful because it seems to be an awesome product to make smoothies and various other yummies with it.

  25. The cutting board in the recipe pic is beautiful. I wonder if it is a ProTeak like the prize offered. Beautiful with lots of room so your food wouldn’t have to keep trying falling off.

  26. um, all of them! And that dehydrator would make my little one cry because it would be in heavy rotation and my little not so great $2 garage sale one would be retired! But I would be cheering….fruit leather here I come!

  27. I’d love all of the prices but covet the Blendtec the most. I love making juice and smoothies and soups! The Blendtec would make it so much easier!

  28. I would love the dehydrator — I use mine so much I had one break on me already and it would handy to have two to run at the same time as it seems during peak season I am always waiting for one load to finish drying so I can load something else in it.

  29. Thanks so much for the chance to win something in this awesome giveaway! I’d really love any of these but I’m leaning towards the dehydrator.

  30. I would love to win any of these! I would use the Blendtec the most for making smoothies and nut milks and butters.

  31. Any of these wonderful prizes would make a wonderful gift for a family member or would be right at home in my kitchen. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the chance.

  32. You have a wonderful blog ! I’m always learning something new and, at the same time hopefully be chosen for an awesome tool to make life better. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

  33. I would love any of them. All such great choices! Many of us cant afford these extras that you’ve made possible. Thank you!

  34. Thank you for the contest, what a wonderful Christmas present this will be for someone. Love the recipe for the cranberry pie, I am thinking this is going to be a Thanksgiving keeper for me, thank you for sharing it, it looks wonderful! So excited about trying it! Have a great Thanksgiving holiday with your family and friends!

  35. It’s hard to choose just one I’d love to win. My votes are the Blendtec and culturing items. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  36. I would love to win the dehydrator! We’re about to move onto 5 acres – lots of space for my garden, and a dehydrator would be very useful in helping me preserve the harvest. My second choice would be the culturing package. We plan to get goats and a dairy cow, and I will be learning how to make cheese. Plus, fermenting sounds interesting, too! ๐Ÿ™‚

  37. I would be grateful if I won any one of the items you are giving away, but if I could choose one I would choose the SousVide Supreme Demi Promo Pack. I would choose this for two reasons: the first is I have always wanted a vacuum sealer to help preserve and package food. The second is Iโ€™ve never even heard of the SousVide Supreme oven and love learning to cook with new โ€œtoysโ€. I will have to study up on thisโ€ฆlooks fun. Thank you for the chance to win. ~blessings

  38. I would have to say the Blendtec blender because you can make just about anything in it from ice cream to smoothies to crushing ice. And I would use it to make everyday healthy foods.

  39. Wow! Awesome giveaway! Any of these prizes would be great but my first choice would be the Excalibur dehydrator because that has been on my wish list for a few years. My next choice would be the fermenting and cheese kits. I keep reading about these and would love to try making them. Again been on my wish list. Blender would be next. Mine’s gone. (Long story!) Been out out of work for about year and a half due to health issues so any of these prizes would be a wonderful Christmas present to me! Lol.

  40. It’s so difficult to choose just one, but I guess I would choose the Traditional Kitchen Culturing Package, because I would like to get started in culturing foods for health reasons.

  41. Would love to win the Blendtec as I understand it to do more magic than my current blender. Thanks for the opportunity.

  42. I would absolutely love the Traditional Kitchen Culturing Package! Once I move out and get married, my dream is to become a self-sustainable homesteader (even without electricity/solar power), and this would be very helpful in bringing me a little closer to that dream!

  43. Would love the Excalibur. It’s not always easy getting organic fruits and veggies, so when we can get them in the summer months would love to be able to dry them!

  44. THE DEHYDRATOR IS MY FIRST CHOICE AS I DO NOT HAVE ONE, WOULD LIKE TO MAKE FRUIT LEATHER,BANANA CHIPS AND MORE. THE SECOND CHOICE IS THE CULTURING PKG. THEY ARE ALL GREAT.

  45. I’d love to win the Traditional Kitchen Culturing kit. I prefer making my own butter and this would certainly help!!

  46. I would love to win any of them, but the BlendTec would be my top choice. I don’t even have a blender now and have been eyeing these for a couple of years!

  47. Since my ex-wife took MY dehydrator I need the Excalibur 2500ECB 5-Tray Economy Dehydrator even though the other prizes are fantastic.

  48. I would love to win the Excalibur. I do a lot of dehydrating and I have heard that this dehydrator is exceptional.

  49. I would love absolutely any of these! The cutting board would certainly be used the most, but the home culturing gear is the dreamiest one I think!

  50. I would love everything however the Blender would be of the most use to me in making life easier my way. Thank you for this opportunity.

  51. Well, I am really curious about the water oven but I would be thrilled to be able to use the culturing kit. I already started making yogurt in the cooler and am fascinated with all the similar processes but just can’t bring myself to shell out the money!

  52. I think I will make good use of our cranberries for Thanksgiving and make this recipe with them. It looks sounds delicious! Hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  53. The dehydrator is what I would hope to win if I had to choose because I’ve always wanted one. Its really the only thing that I really want that I just haven’t broken down and went out and bought for myself. Its not something that I absolutely have to have so I have learned to manage without it. But it would be nice to dry our fresh garden fruits and veggies as another way to preserve them for later use.

  54. All the prizes look awesome, but since I’ve been wanting to try making my own yogurt, and fermenting, the culturing package would be great!!!!

  55. I would love to win any one of those prizes….they are all wonderful! And thank you for the pie recipe…..definitely going to make it!

  56. Any of the prizes would be wonderful, but the fermentation kit with the hard cheese would be fun to try. Thanks for the opportunity

  57. This is really one of the BEST blogs ever. I am psyched every time it comes to my inbox, always packed with great info and awesome do it yourself idea/techniques/projects! Thank you and keep it coming!!

  58. Laurie–Thank you for this opportunity and for your commitment in helping others. I had never even heard of SousVide before! Anyway, I think I would like to win the culturing set personally, but they are all beautiful additions to any kitchen. And you’re right–there’s always Christmas to think about!

  59. The culturing package would be my first choice, but all the other appliances would be an improvement on my currents ones! What an amazing giveaway!

  60. I’m looking forward to baking the pie and being part of the contest to win all the great prizes. Any one of them would be good!

  61. I would love to win the culturing package and learn how to make my own product. Thanks for the Homesteader Supply website.

  62. Oh my gosh they are all great. I would love to have the kitchen culturing package to make cheese and butter.

  63. I would love to win the cutlery which I need, but I would really love to win the dehydrator which I really really need!
    thank you for the opportunity

  64. Geeze, I have to choose!!! ;0)
    I guess the Blendtec only because my current blender/food processor is being fussy and I have to prepare all my sister’s food to “mechanical soft” since she has a swallowing disorder.
    Pam

  65. I would love the blender as I currently do not have one. The dehydrator would also be awesome for drying herbs other fruits. Thanks for the recipe it was awesome everyone in my house loved it!

  66. Very informative posts. Thank you. I would really like to have an Excalibur dehydrator, it sounds awesome. You can send me any of the other items and I would be grateful for them, as well.

  67. The SousVide- my chef husband would FLIP! But all the prizes are amazing- would love the dehydrator, and the BlendTec, and the fermentation kit, too! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the chance!

  68. I would love to have the Blendtec Designer Series Blender. I love making smoothies and this would make my smoothies even better. I would also be able to so much more; soups, dressing, puree, etc.. It would be such a great tool for serving healthy foods to my family.

  69. I would love to win the culture kit! I am so interested in learning this. Thank you for the opportunity to enter the contest!

  70. I would love the fermentation equipment as that is next on my list of ‘incorporating more whole foods into my family’s life’ haha

  71. I like the cutting board. I need a good cutting board and these are beautiful. I have an Excalibur dehydrator. Its the best. Simple to use and a great way to save food. I’ll have to explore the Sous Vide. Honestly I have never seen one.

  72. I would love to get the Culturing kit! I have been trying to get more fermented foods in my diet, but most require some form of specialized equipment, and this would be wonderful to get so many in one shot!!!!!
    This pie looks so appetizing. Iโ€™m not really a pie person, but walnuts and cranberries: VERY tasty!

  73. I love cranberries and just about any thing you can put them in. As a young boy I would eat them raw.. It drove my mother nuts to watch me munch on a mouth full of those tart berries.

  74. I would love to win the Traditional Kitchen Culturing Package , I am just learning to make cheese. The Excaliber dehydrator would be wonderful also, any of the prizes would be great !! Thank you for having this giveaway ! I am trying to get away from all the processed food from the store & trying to grow & prepare all our own food from meat & milk from our goats to our garden !!! Thanks for all you share !!

  75. I would love to win the Traditional Kitchen Culturing Package , I am just learning to make cheese. any of the prizes would be great !! Thank you for having this giveaway ! I am trying to get away from all the processed food from the store & trying to grow & prepare all our own food from meat & milk from our goats to our garden !!! Thanks for all you share !!

  76. I love the dehydrator. Hubby and I are moving into an rv and will need the room a dehydrator will afford us in keeping a food storage. If I can’t have that, I like the blender. I can make a lot of green smoothies with that! (Not to mention the fruit wraps and as may things as I can think of to puree that can go on a tray of my new dehydrator)

  77. I would love the SousVide! Or the culturing equipment! Or the lovely cutting board! (I have the others, so let someone else win those!) Thanks for the opportunity!

  78. What a great giveaway. I would love to win the cutting board by Proteak. That is something I’m always struggling to maintain to keep clean.

  79. I would love to win the Excalibur Dehydrator. I have a small one but, you can’t put very much in it. Thanks for the giveaway!

  80. What fantastic finds. Thanks for sharing them as giveaways. On our epic journey into homsteading these are invaluable!

  81. Being a third year homesteader (the fisrt 2 reading about it and learning how to improve my trailer and a few other basics) I’m now beginning my deeper, more seroius homesteading journey on a budget. These giveaways are fantastic, thanks for sharing!

  82. Thanks for the chance to win Laurie! I would love to have the Culturing Package. Your Cranberry Walnut pie sounds and looks delicious. It’s been cold and snowy here as well today so I made a big pot of homemade chicken noodle soup and a loaf of Date Nut Bread. The house smelled of the holidays today. Thanks again for the chance to win a great prize.

  83. that is quite a giveaway … have to say that. the. products should be won by me im one deserves them. .. no lapotp savvy . but guess im on pinerest. and. want the blendtec. and the. rest of them. . .. and culturing . . . . . they are too expensive unless did win them never have as it has looked to own them..

  84. Gosh, I’m town between the blendtec and the Excalibur. I think the Excalibur would be the most useful, though. Currently, I’d love it for saving good buys on produce, and when we move and are able to have a garden, I really want to dehydrate. It would be amazing to win any one of them, though!

  85. This looks fantastic! Given that I have a pecan allergy, I am appreciating the use of the walnuts. Looks gooey, tangy and yummy!

  86. I would love to win all of the prizes but especially the culturing package, I have made sauerkraut but that is the only cultured food I have made and I have read such amazing things about cultured food I would really like to make other things. I like the taste of fermented foods and I would like to be able to make more for better health as well!

  87. I would love to win either the fermenting set or the dehydrator. Love dried fruits, but can’t afford to buy them all the time.

  88. The recipe looks amazing. Will definitely add to my holiday recipe stash this year. Great giveaway package, too!

  89. I love the idea of all the prizes, being a mother of 10 anything to help out in preparing food would be amazing. I really like the culture kit the most because it would a good learning opportunity and the cutting board but if I won it truly would not matter I would just be thankful for winning!.

  90. would so love to have a good dehydrator… or… the wonderful culturing package… or…? just want to keep us as healthy as possible with wholesome, real food.

  91. Oh my! Did Christmas come early or what!? I am a stay at home mom with 3 grown, out of home children. I love to share new gadgets with them, because, I am also 1 of 10 siblings that are always exploring new gadgets and ideas. So I know about all these products, but none of us own all of them. We fish, hunt, garden, can, cook, smoke, and feast. We are not so refined but we are usually pleasant. LOL. life is good. I love reading your emails and I really love your give aways, they make up my Christmas list.

  92. I would love to win the SousVide Supreme Demi Promo Pack or the Excalibur 2500ECB 5-Tray Economy Dehydrator. Watching the chefs use the SousVide machine on TV looks like it would be fun to cook foods that way and s dehydrator would be great for preserving anyway.

  93. I would love to win either the blendtec because I need a new stronger blender or the Excalibur dehydrator because I want to start dehydrating my herbs and fruits and maybe even try making jerky.

  94. I would love the SousVide Supreme Demi Promo Pack. With six kids and three adults in our house we buy everything in bulk and this would be an amazing way to repackage all kinds of foods.

  95. I would love to win any of the listed items, but since I must choose, :o) , I would like the SousVide Supreme Demi in black and Sous Vide Vacuum Sealer VS3000 . Really want to thank you all for setting this up. Blessings to all.

  96. The dehydrator because I would love to be able to use it to make jerky and fruit leathers and lots of other things that take too long to use the oven.

  97. I would love to win the dehydrator as I have wanted to be able to dehydrate food. Any one of the prizes would be nice to win as they are all really great. Thank you so much for having this contest!

  98. I would love to win the Blendtec Blender, we have started adding green smoothies to the menu and think a better blender would be awesome ๐Ÿ™‚

  99. What wonderful prizes! I would love to win the Bledtec, as we enjoy daily smoothies! Thank you for the opportunity!

  100. This recipe is fantastic! Time to make my midnight snack ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad I was introduced to your blog through the giveaway. Right up my alley. Thanks for all the wonderful info on your blog.

  101. i thank to have such a contest and set prizes………..it would be very great to feel if i win lucky prize!
    any prize i win it would be useful and good for me because all are useful things….

  102. I would love to win the dehydrator. I have just begun to learn how much dehydrating can change my world, and it is amazing!

  103. I would love to have the dehydrator. We have a used one that works ok, but it doesn’t have a way to adjust the temperature. This one would be fantastic!

  104. Okay, well if I have to choose just one to be really excited about, I would have to go with the Blendtec blender because we are smoothie people and I use my blender for making dressings, salsa, pretty much anything. But I have always wanted to try dehydrating my own fruits and vegetables. I have heard great things about the Excalibur, but haven’t had the opportunity to splurge on one yet.

  105. I’d love to win, especially since I am in need of dehydrator. Thanks for allowing us to join in on this great giveaway.

  106. Would love to have the things in my kitchen that I cannot afford! Thanks for the recipe; will try the GF version!

  107. Wow, like the site lots of good information, and I sure could use the info. form experience homesteaders. Especially, since I am a small farmer, and don’t know jack.

  108. I would love to win the blendtec pack as I have health issues that make it difficult to eat anything unless it is pureed and can’t afford one of those beauties

  109. Thank you for hosting this great giveaway! All of these prizes sound wonderful and I would love any one of them. If I had to choose, I would love to try the SousVide Supreme or the Excalibur Dehydrator. I have never heard of a SousVide before, so I will have to look into that and I have been wanting the Excalibur for a while now. Thank you again.

  110. Gee its a toss up to which I would like the most, the dehydrator or the SousVide Supreme…Hmmmm…I can everything so either would be great !!! I have never heard of the SousVide so will have to check it our. The recipe sounds great and can’t wait to try it !!! Thanks for such an awesome give away of so many things I could use but can’t afford..

  111. It’s really hard to say just one thing that I’d love to win! The Blendtec, the dehydrator, the vacuum sealer, that beautiful cutting board! But I think I’d have to say I’m most excited about the culture kit! I’m just getting into fermentation and culturing. It’s such an incredible process! And so beneficial! I’m excited to help my family’s health by starting on this microbiological journey!

  112. Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway! For a very long time I have wanted an Excalibur Dehydrator and would love to win it. I have a pile of recipes I would love to make like the Pumpkin Leather posted earlier. I have two pumpkins sitting in my kitchen just waiting. Thank you again.

  113. They are all great prizes, but I think I would like the Traditional Kitchen Culturing Package the most. I have been reading up on home fermenting and want to try it. This package would help with that and you get the added bonus of culturing butter AND cheese making! I think that’s totally cool!!!

  114. I was really leaning toward the blender, but I have always wanted a dehydrator, so I’d have to say that is the one I’d like the most. They all look awesome, though!

  115. Any of the prizes would be fantastic. We are just starting our homestead so every little bit helps. Can’t wait to try the pie m, cranberry is one of my favorite harvest flavors.

  116. I’d especially like the dehydrator-dehydrating seems like a very simple way to preserve some of the foods I have too many of at various times of the year when canning isn’t an option.

  117. I’d love the dehydrator. Times are tough for my family and this would help me make better purchasing choices for food storage. Keeping my fingers crossed

  118. hard to pick one thing I’d like. Blendtec (I have one) but need the twister jar ๐Ÿ™‚ and I could give my adult son one of the Blendtecs. I’d also like the dehydrator as I don’t have one…sure would like to take cranberries and dry them…all the store bought ones (I’ve found) have sugar on them and I don’t want GMO beet sugar in/on my food.

  119. I would like the blendtec blender the most as I hope to work on juicing to get the most nutrition from my fruits and veggies for me and my kiddos.

  120. I would love to win either the sous vide package, fermentation package or the dehydrator. I have a very old Nesco from my mother in law. The Excalibur would be a dream ๐Ÿ™‚ THANKS for a wonderful giveaway! ๐Ÿ™‚

  121. Looks yummy… I’d use pecans though, walnuts make my lips feel funny… lol Thanks for sponsoring the giveaway ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Walnuts have a fairly high tannin level. If you soak them in salt water overnight, and then dehydrate until crisp to make “crispy nuts”, they are fabulous! They taste almost like candied nuts – but they aren’t. We’ve been blessed to get an abundance of walnuts in the shell from a neighbor’s trees, so each year we process them this way. You can read more in the post, “How to Process Walnuts“. Of course, pecans are great, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  122. Thanks for being a contributor to this awesome giveaway. Winning the Blentec would be a BIG help to our REAL food eating and helping our bodies to heal.

  123. Iโ€™d like any one of them because theyโ€™re all great! But if I had to pick just one, Iโ€™d choose the Traditional Kitchen Culturing Package from Homesteader Supply.

  124. One item I’d be excited to try is the blender. I’m curious if the high powered blenders are different enough to warrant their high pricetag.

  125. I would love to have the Excaliber!! Oh the things I would dehydrate!! Jerky, nuts, fruits…and also yogurt and sourdough. I tried making sourdough starter with my kombucha, but no luck so far. I will keep trying. Thanks for the great tips, recipes, and research you do! It is greatly appreciated ๐Ÿ™‚

  126. Awesome giveaway! Would love the dehydrator..even though ALL the products are great!!
    We grow many different herbs, fruits & veggies..love to have the ability to put up dried foods for longer storage. Thank you for this opportunity!

  127. Wow, that pie looks amazing! I am so excited about this giveaway, mostly the fermenting and culturing package.

  128. I don’t see my comment, so I’m commenting again and hoping this isn’t a duplicate.

    I’m impressed at the quality and variety of prizes offered. What a choice! My first choice would be the fermenting/culturing package, as I am actively trying to add more cultured foods into our diet to heal our guts.

  129. what an amazing set of giveaways!!! thank you all, so much, for gathering the supplies and, more importantly, teaching us how to use them.

  130. I have my eye on the SousVide Supreme Demi promo pack. I’ve actually never heard of the oven before and it intrigues me, and I’m in eed of a good sealer.
