    Very tasty. Hubby didn't care for the ginger though. - 2/15/09

  • I liked the flavor combination, though I'll put a little less ginger in next time so it doesn't overpower everything else. It's also very pretty and has easy to serve small portions, so it's coming along to Thanksgiving dinner at my friend's house this year. - 11/20/12
