It has been a couple of years since Andy last made some mincemeat for Christmas. The last batch was yummy with the blueberries from my brother's plantations adding that 'alternative' touch. Today's batch again contains blueberries but also dried cranberries, apricots, fat juicy sultanas, raisins, almonds, hazlenuts, home made candied peel, apples, suet, spices, lime zest, a banana, brown sugar and a damn fine glug of Armagnac and also some malt whisky.We now have 3 kgs of mincemeat, most of which will be jarred tomorrow and left to mature for future Yuletide celebrations. I will however be making some mince pies for consumption this Christmas - yum :-)
