I sprang for the walnut oil but substituted 2 tbsp. ground ginger for the fresh, and 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp. ground cloves, and 1/4 tsp. ground alspice for the cardamom. Potatoes stay...

This was a great recipe that I made for a dinner party, word of caution: cut the ginger in half at least! The ginger is potent and too strong, but if you cut back on it, it works! I would make ...
