So out came the trusty Delia cookery book to find her Mincemeat recipe:-
and within about 30 minutes all the ingredients were in the bowl. I gave it a good stir -
and left it overnight. Next morning early, I popped the bowl into a very low oven which melts the suet and coats the ingredients with the fat thus preserving it.
|I think the warmth 'fogged' the lens!|
It was one that I used when I first started working and was given to me by a colleague and I have used it every year since. I halve the ingredients as you can see from the pencilled margin!! I have absolutely no idea what these are in cups or grams as I cannot do the conversions!!!!
Higham Piecemakers have an 'all day' group meeting on the third Monday of the month and though I don't always make what the Monday ladies do this month there has been a big take up from the Wednesday evening Ladies. It is a fabric Christmas wreath and I have started to make it.
First of all cut out 64 x 3⅛" squares and 32 wedges -
The squares are folded into prairie points and inserted into the wedges that have been folded in half -
and that is all I am going to show you for the moment as I am being taken out to a posh lunch and I have to get ready!!
I will show more later in the week.
