I made this the other night for dinner, it had a lovely flavour and was very easy. I wasn't sure if you meant ground ginger or fresh, I used about 1t pulped fresh as I didn't have ground. There is a lot of water ffor the gravy, it took ages to cook down and I think this is what made the gravy slightly watery & not as flavoursome as it could have been. Next time I will add a little more jelly & a little less water. Thanks AB Fan (hope that stands for All Blacks by the way!)
