Yes I know it’s months to Christmas, but ...............
I ran out of time to make my mincemeat last year and I can’t bear the overly sweet and tasteless version on offer in the shops. I tentatively approached a Kilner jar that remained full from Christmas 2010 in the hope that it may be OK. It had certainly been given plenty of time to mature! It was marvellous. Probably the best mincemeat I have made in years.
I can thoroughly recommend this recipe and the beauty of it is that most of the work is done by the food-processor and it can go straight into the jar without the usual couple of days soaking.
