    I made this but added sliced carrot, pea pods, and bamboo shoots to it. I also changed the apple to pink lady apples because they are a little crisper. It was very good. - 12/18/08

    For those who used powdered ginger instead of fresh -- fresh ginger tastes MUCH different than powdered ginger. Also, I am going to marinate the meat with minced or sliced fresh ginger, scallions, soy sauce, fresh cracked black pepper, and sesame oil before stir frying for added flavor. - 8/7/09

    For those who have a problem with mincing ginger (or garlic, for that matter) just use a hand held cheese grater. You don' t even have to peel the ginger. Just wash it. For me, I would slice the peppers similar to the pork, in keeping with Chinese visual perfection. - 9/14/09

    I love this recipe. i always added brown sugar till i saw the peach preserves. Instead i bought peaches and put them in my little processor and it was really very good that way also.
