I LOVE this recipe! I have made it several times with great results. I have followed the recipe as written and it was very good, but I now add 1/2 tsp minced fresh ginger in place of the powder and it is even better in my opinion. I have recently omitted the 1 tsp of salt and found it was just fine without. Great recipe I will never even try another one.
