  1. sounds yummy, and I've recently discovered that I can now eat pineapple without my face coming out in a rash, so I might make this to celebrate. Love the addition of ginger.

  3. I am so glad that I found your blog. I love the food and I don't know where to start. This is quite good but now I live in Spain and it is not like the UK, here fruits and vegetables seem to be seasonal.

    Will wait for the summer :D

  11. I wish we had fresh tropical fruit here in England. By the way, I can't eat pawpaw in any form--even dried. It gives me terrible stomach ache. I was even rushed to hospital the first time I ate it. Something about the enzymes attacks my stomach.
