After recently seeing that, a few of our friends across the pond have been making English bakes using beef mincemeat instead of sweet. I thought it would be an idea to put together a post that shows you how to make sweet mincemeat that you can use in mince pies, tarts and other bakes.

Ingredients 225 grams Currants 225 grams Sultanas 225 grams Raisins 225 grams Mixed peel or Dried...
