Ok so I know Stir It Up Sunday is traditionally for Christmas Pud, but I thought I'd make my mincemeat today....
I use Delia's recipe... You can't go wrong with a bit of Delia. Except I don't use the almonds; I replace them with Glacé Cherries. So yesterday, we had this:
I left it overnight in the Laundry Room (no radiator in there so nice and cool). This morning I put it in a barely warm oven and left it.
3 hours later we had this:
I left it to cool completely, as suggested by Queen Delia in her recipe, before stirring in the brandy and dividing between sterilised jars.
Miss Bags and I will make our mincers later in December.... Watch this space!
Happy Stir It Up Sunday to you... I hope all your wishes come true....! xx
