Yum! I made this as a treat for my sons and they loved it. I wasn't sure how they would like the ginger in it, but they did. Very good. Made for ZWT4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.

Yummy, the pineapple and ginger go so well together. This would be perfect for a hot day, even thought we had two fire boxes going in the house because we are in the middle of winter. It was still very enjoyable. Thank you Engrossed - *Made for Zaar World Tour 4*
