Mincemeat sweet pies without meat is a total enigma to me, may as well make a vegan steak & kidney pie!


1 ¼ pounds round steak, cut into small pieces
1 cup apple cider
4 Granny Smith apples - peeled, cored and finely diced
1 ⅓ cups white sugar
2 ½ cups dried currants
2 ½ cups raisins
½ pound chopped candied mixed fruit peel
½ cup butter
1 (16 ounce) jar sour cherry preserves
1 teaspoon ground ginger
½ teaspoon ground cloves
½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
1 (16 ounce) can pitted sour cherries, drained with liquid reserved
1 recipe pastry for a 9 inch double crust pie
2 tablespoons heavy cream

I've tried that but didn't like it, find it counterintuitive when trying to marshall my thoughts...

Mincemeat recipe - BBC Food.pdf
(60.44 KiB) Downloaded 8 times
I'm going to try this recipe and get COA to like mince pies for once...

Please note although the muppets at the BBC don't proofread their content - I do.... so ignore the bit at the top where it says 'no cooking required' - it does need 1 hour of cooking in a large saucepan. I reckon I might do it in the slow cooker as it requires a low heat... can't do any harm and I can always transfer to a pan if I don't think it's reached a suitable temp for long enough.

I don't recall doing that, and I'm not going to search. Err so I did but that was on refusing to upgrade to Windows 10.. . Are you still running 7?

No, I gave in eventually and got used to W10.

Seriously though, try sorting by 'descending' - just for a week - you will adapt to the idea quite quickly, and it's so much easier when dealing with long (or very long) threads.
