    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!)


I learned how to cook from my mom, and love to putz around in the kitchen. I watch many shows on The Food Network, too, though Good Eats is my favorite. I have many recipes of my own but am always looking for something that's just a bit different. I am now on the look out for great tasting lower carb recipes, and for natural/organic, whole foods. Feel free to send me Zmail! My photo - this a photo was taken at The Hofbrau Haus in Munich, Germany in April 2007. My mom and I took a wonderful 3-week tour last year and ate here twice. The food was homey and delicious, and the bier was great! I can't believe I finished the whole thing... <a href="http://photobucket.com/icons/" target="_blank"><img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b379/ilikeggs0607/icons/z5587136.jpg"></a><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa9/deo0519/ZWT3/ab_fish_small.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a><a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i196.photobucket.com/albums/aa9/deo0519/ZWT3/ab_sm_small.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a> <a href="http://photobucket.com" target="_blank"><img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/houdini6.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"></a><img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%203/ZWT3-Participation.gif"> <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/projects/200_PACpic.jpg" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <img src="http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y53/DUCHESS13/Zaar%20World%20Tour%204/ZWTAB-tg.gif"><img src="http://img355.imageshack.us/img355/3476/mybanner483b81c1ea2dfah7.jpg">
