23/10/2018: Micemeat Recipe

Here's the Squire's own recipe for mincemeat, using the fruit residue from the mulled cider. This isn't just thrown together you know…

All the leftover fruit from mulled cider
1 Large cooking apple
1/2 lb raisins
1/2 lb sultanas
1/2 lb shredded suet
1/2 lb muscovado sugar
Large cup of dark rum
1 nutmeg seed, finely grated

Finely chop a large cooking apple and soak it in the rum along with the raisins and sultanas for an hour or so. Strain off the rum and mix it with the muscovado sugar and grated nutmeg.

Crack out the fruit drained from the mulled cider pan, which you carefully put to one side, put it into a large mixing bowl with the strained apple, currants and raisins. Remove the cloves from the citrus fruits left over from the mulled cider, extract their juice, peel them and chop the peel very finely.

Mix the peel and suet with the other ingredients. Finally add the rum and sugar, mix all very thoroughly and spoon into sterilised jars with airtight lids. Store for at least a month before use.
