I think I may be cutting this recipe a little short of time, but as it’s the festive period I just had to share it with you. This is the first time I have made mincemeat, and I can’t for the life of me think why I have never made it before, its soooooooooooo easy! You just shove all your ingredients in a pan, give it a stir, dollop it into jars and hey presto!… Delicious homemade mincemeat for you to enjoy all over the festive period. Well, I say festive period, this recipe does take a bit of resting so you need to be making it, ermm… last week; but if you get in there ASAP then you will be able to enjoy some lovely warm home baked pies on Christmas day. Or what the heck, make it anyway and eat Mince Pies into the New Year – they will still taste just as delicious!
