Thinking of the days when my husband made delicious mince pies.
Last year we finished our last jar of mincemeat. These last few weeks were then spent hunting for organic oranges to make the candied peel. When all the ingredients were ready–lo and behold! Three jars of mincemeat turned up from the bottom of the cupboard, labeled “February 2021”. Make more mincemeat or not? Why not? 🙂
Here’s the recipe that we follow. Waking up to the scent of mincemeat soaking for the last 12 hours tells you that Christmas is really in the air.
