"This recipe was delicious!! The sauce from the pork goes great over rice. I did change it a bit and used peach perseveres instead of orange, but I will make this again and again."

"This was delicious. I served it over white rice with fresh pineapple on the side. By the way; in response to the person concerned about the cost of the fresh gingerroot. I paid 94 cents for two fairly large pieces."

"You can freeze the fresh ginger. Just wrap well and place in a plastic bag then peel and grate just what you need while frozen and return remaining ginger to the freezer. I always keep a little bagged piece of ginger in the freezer and use it whenever a recipe calls for ground ginger. You will not believe the difference it will make in your pumpkin pie!"

"1/16 tsp ground for 1/2 tsp fresh...however it tastes slightly different. If you pick through the ginger at the market you can usually find a knob that's fallen off another piece. Look for a one inch piece; easier to peel and then use a grater instead of mincing (faster, easier). Gingerroot is so lightweight I think you'll be surprised at the low cost when it's all said and done."
