Ginger-for-theTummy Gorp
    Ginger settles tummies and it’s also a sweet, spicy dessert treat. Bake this fiber-rich snack  in one piece, then chop it in bite size to package in individual portions of about a half cup each.

2 cups whole wheat flour
3/4 cup rolled oats
1 ½ teaspoons cream of tartar
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon ground ginger
2 sticks butter, softened to room temperature
1/4 cup milk or cream

    Set the oven for 325 degrees. Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl. Grease a 9 X 13-inch baking pan. Use a pastry blender to cut butter into dry ingredients until mixture is mealy. Stir in milk or cream.  Mixture will be very thick. Spread it evenly in the pan, using the back of a wet spoon to pack it in. Bake 25 minutes or until golden. Cool in the pan. Turn out on a cutting board and chop with a chef's knife.  Package for pocket or purse.
