This is a terrific recipe, and it tasted great as written, but I wanted it to taste slightly different so, I added two ginger crisp apples, a little water, 1tsp dried (powder)ginger and 1 tablespoon of chopped fresh ginger, leaving the plum peel and apple peel in little bits, because, I whizzed it a bit with my hand held immersion blender. Great taste sensation!
