Martin Dwyers Christmas Mincemeat

Martin Dwyer’s Christmas Mincemeat

Martin Dwyer’s Christmas Mincemeat

This delicious homemade version is more versatile than you would think. As well as making traditional Mince Pies to hand out to the carol singers, you could make one large mince tart as a Christmas dessert.

Mix it 50/50 with grated apple and it will make a much less rich version of the same. A small amount warmed gently makes a good sauce for ice cream and (as it lasts for ages,) you will have no problem with using up left overs! Just keep in jars and have later in the year when they would be most welcome.
