I know you were all hanging on the edge of your seats just dying to know what I stuffed into that great homemade pita bread (yeah, right!), so I’m back to fulfill my promise.

These were so perfect for a hot summer night and I already had the ingredients in my fridge as extras from other recipes. Great way to use all the goodies from mygarden too! These will definitely be making repeat appearances at the Jones dinner table.

You have mentioned frozen garlic and frozen ginger. Do you have instructions on how to make these items?

I don’t make them. You can get them in the freezer section of your grocery store. 100% fresh garlic or ginger, already crushed up and portioned out. No preservatives or junk in the jarred stuffed. I LOVE them!
