    Yum. I must have a bit of New Zealand in me, because I love ginger in everything!

  2. Caroline says:

    You’d love NZ, in that case, Kieran. Loads of gingery things to try – and their ginger beer…SO good!

  3. Ruth says:

    Caroline, I’ve always wanted to visit New Zealand and now I have another incentive – ginger!Love the sound of ginger crunch and photo looks good enough to eat. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Caroline says:

    The amount of different ginger-flavoured things that you can get in NZ is really mind boggling. My particular favourite was the ginger bears – gummi bear-types with a real spicy zing. Oh, there’s lots of things that I wish I’d brought back from New Zealand. At least I managed to bring the Boyfriend with me!

    YES! I simply adore ginger crunch, it’s always my slice of choice.I’m thinking I might get out my trusty or is that rusty? gem irons for this event, haven’t used them in years!!

  6. Caroline says:

    Oh, I miss my gem irons! I really enjoyed using them when I was in New Zealand and, since I came back, I’ve been driving the Boyfriend mad by listing off the things-that-I-should-have-brought-back-to-Ireland. They’re top of that ever-lengthening list, along with my small cast-iron frying pan, asian cleaver, Errol Hitt’s Canterbury saffron, some Pure Wasabi and cookbooks too numerous to mention. Definitely dig them out, Bron, and let me know how you get on!
