Back in March, I won this blog giveaway from ‘Red Gingham’
Some ‘jam jar skirts’ made by Sarah in New Zealand. I put them on my jars – but then when the jams and marmalades were finished, I put the skirts away. It occurred to me that they would look exceedingly festive on my Cranberry Mincemeat.
I have yet to decide exactly how I am going to use it. Current ideas
- regular mincepies – maybe with star shaped tops
- small filo pastry parcels or crackers
- tiny tartlets using my Lakeland Mini-Morsels Pan
What I am not doing is splashing out on Waitrose’s ‘brick pastry’ [feuilles de brick] as per Delia’s suggestions of Christmas 2008.
And have I missed it? What is the “Christmas Must-Have” recipe ingredient this year? I am not conscious of anybody promoting anything particular. [Apart from Kirstie’s oysters at a quid a mouthful!]
Perhaps people are recession conscious and not risking their hard earned pennies on new fangled foods?
