This recipe was one of those things that came about from a conversation that went something like….
Friend – “I’ve got so many courgettes I don’t know what to do with them!…can we have a play with your jam maker this afternoon”
Me – “Yep OK…whatcha fancy doing with them?”
Friend – ” Well I was wondering whether we could make Christmas mincemeat”
Me – ” Well there’s only one way to find out …I’ll stick the kettle on and see you soon :)”
After a while of mucking about and adding bits of this and that…we agreed it was a winner…made mince pies and took them to work…no one knew any different!
