The cloves add an unexpected taste! I topped this with pecans, not almonds Great tasting dish that was easy to prepare!

I loved this! The first time I made it I had only dry spices, and was still great. This time, except for powdered ginger, I followed the recipe exactly.

I might make it again, but the next time with 1/2t of powdered ginger. The way it is now, ALL I could taste was ginger.
