It’s that time of the year when I start thinking about the big ‘C’ word, only from a baking perspective of course, it’s far too early to think about anything else right?
My children think otherwise 🤦🏻♀️
So for the past few years I haven’t had the time to prepare ahead but this year I am organised and ready to go!
I was thinking… my late Mum always made her ‘C’ pudding in the October half term as she worked in a primary school and used the break to bake. So I must make mine now.
Time to flick through my most treasured recipe books, handed down from the dearly missed matriarchs in my life, my Mum, my mother-in-law and my Nan.
Here in my Nan’s well used recipe book, I found this mincemeat recipe that was her Mum’s recipe… so I’m going to give it a go, alongside making ‘C’ puddings.
I’ll let you know how I get on making Great Grandmas Mincemeat for the first time, ready for the mince pies……
…I’m not sure I’ll make the Mince meat flan!!! 🤣
