I just made a little trail mix with some dried fruits (cranberries, cherries, and raisins) and some almonds and other assorted nuts with a little touch of dried coconut flakes, and I threw in a little crystallized ginger, and I have to say, it really kicks up the trail mix a bit! It might not be for everybody, but it added a zip to an otherwise sweet/sour and umami dominated mix.
I liked it a lot, in other words!

Damnit to hell. Crystallized ginger. Why must every random open thread have a c-object? I’m not trying to do this, folks, I swear.
