I mentioned in an earlier post that we had decided to make our own mincemeat this year, so I wanted to post the during and after pictures. I used Delia Smith's recipe which was pretty simple to follow, I just adjusted it to add hazelnuts instead of almonds as we have a glut of hazels. If anyone has any interesting ideas of what to do with hazelnuts, do let me know!
Here is the mincemeat before it was cooked:
And here it is after being bottled:
I had to do a quick taste test and it tasted rather good, so here's hoping it is splendid by the time we make our pies at Christmas.
