Helena making the most delicious chocolate and beetroot mincemeat... recipe at the end of page..


 somebody needs a dance... poor Abby it was a bit chilly out of the sunshine ...!!

Not to worry plenty of Mulled cider waiting for you at
The Bear
and dont forget your raffle tickets...£1 a strip

Prizes to be won ...ooOoh exciting!!



To make 6lbs of mincemeat..
5oogm sultanas 
500g raisins..
500g currants..
500g dried apricots or candied peel..
juice and zest of 2 unwaxed lemons &2 oranges..
150g glace cherries..
2 peeled and finely diced bramley apples..
200g dark chocolate drops..this replaces suet found in other recipes 
2 tbsp honey
3-5 tbsp mixed spice
1/4 bottle brandy..
and not forgetting 750gm soft brown sugar.....(oooops!)


Put all the ingredients into a large bowl, mix thoroughly  cover and leave overnight to soak.
The following day, fill sterilised jars with the mixture, if using cellophane covers, place a waxed disk on the top of the mincemeat before covering before covering with the cellophane cover. If using a screw-cap or glass hinged-lid jar, there is no need of a waxed disk
This mincemeat is best matured for a month, in a cool dark place before using, although it can be used straight away. opened jars will keep for a couple of weeks in the fridge. thanks to Helena for this scrummy recipe

all these ingredients are available from The Bear

 We hope you had a lovely time.... we did

And to finish off an amazing day the most beautiful sunset  pushes through the Bride stones
