Recipe for Date and Ginger Slice


I'm the only one in our family who like preserved ginger. The others don't bother eating this slice so I get it all to myself. My mouth is drooling at the very thought of this recipe.

Because butter is the setting agent in this slice you must keep the slice in the refrigerator to keep it firm. Don't put it in a lunch box on a hot day. Even I would get turned off eating it if it was soft and warm
