    This butter will add a lot of flavor to whatever you use it for! I was pleasently surprised at how much the ginger came through. One word of advice: don't walk away for too long, it will burn! LOL! That was completely my fault :) Made for ZWT 7.

    This is a very flavorful mixture. I could see this working well in rice or vegetable dishes as well as with meat. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT Witchin Kitchen, Skim into Africa challenge.
