Ready for winter

We went to Angel today to get some wool for those scarfs we are knitting:)  And then we got back home and made the mince for mince pies.  We got the recipe from Heather in New Zealand and we are ever so grateful!  It’s the same amount of raisins 227 g, mixed peel, sultanas, green apples, currants, brown soft sugar, a third of that up to 85 g in whole almonds with skins, tsp ginger, tsp nutmeg, pinch of salt, half a cup of cointreau and mince it all.  Put in the fridge.  Then just make the pastry and fill it with this lovely mixture and Christmas season here we come:)

    So pleased to hear you’re still enjoying the recipe. Our lead-up to Christmas in NZ is meant to be Spring and warmer, but so far it feels about as cold as you look! Happy baking!
