I used dried sour cherries, but didn't rehydrate them in advance of cooking. I also used finely julienned fresh ginger instead of powdered; and added pecans instead of walnuts after cooking. It zinged!! I've also used unseasoned rice vinegar, which won't alter or overwhelm the delicate balance of flavors of this company deserving dish. And sometimes I like to increase the volume of the sauce with a little chicken stock, thicken it with cornstarch when I serve it with rice. This recipe rocks-it will certainly earn you an atta cook!
