Mince pies from now to December

The cupboard clearout has now started in earnest with the kitchen and utiltiy room being tackled first.
Anything worn or broken is going in the bin and all those 'extra' food stuffs are being sorted into 'things to use up' and 'things to put into a big box and give to someone who will use them as it is daft to throw perfectly good food out'!

So there i am today sorting through the accumulated clutter ... and there, in the back of the fruit juice cupboard (of all places?!), i found FOUR jars of sweet mince meat that i made last Christmas and didnt get around to using up!  It was one of Delia Smith's recipes and it made a HUGE batch of mincemeat - far more than i needed for christmas eve mince pies - and the rest had sat forgotten in the back of the cupboard until now.  So guess what the kids and i did this afternoon - yup that is right we made mince pies!!

Trouble is that the batch we made today only used up about half of a jar - meaning we have at least another 5 batches to go to finish it all off.  So you have been warned - if you decide to pop round to ours for tea anytime in the near future expect to be fed mince pies from now until we fly!
