AMAZING! it did well even without the chinese mustard (I just used dried reg. mustard) very zippy. the vinegar wasn't overpowering like I thought it would be. yum.

This is an excellent ginger sauce! I made pot stickers and used this sauce - what a delight! I added 2 Tlb. sucanat for a touch of sweetness. Awesome! Thank you for sharing.

This is delicious! I had made it as a sauce to go over some pork and it was tasty. The truly great surprise was the next day when I decided to use the leftover sauce as a marinade for shrimp that I then skewered and grilled! Absolutely delicious!! YUM!!!
