Cranberry mincemeat

It’s that time of year again. I love making mince pies and making the mincemeat as it gets the house smelling like Christmas in no time! I tried Nigella’s cranberry mincemeat recipe years ago and never bothered to find another because it’s that good. Also, I don’t feel festive until I’ve watched an old episode of Nigella in her fairy lit, Christmassy kitchen. Nigella. I salute you. 

So here’s my jar of mincemeat this year….. pretty huh? Also, it’s only right that you test the port and brandy whilst you’re cooking with it … you know just to test it. You don’t want to poison your family, friends and work colleagues. It’s the right thing to do. 

In two weeks time I’ll make some lovely pastry and assembly my pies!
