    I love to make my own mincemeat, I don't like shop bought with the huge chunks of peel in it. I intend to try some of yours, love the sound of the Californian raisin x

    I'd never thought of making my own mincemeat but now I'm quite tempted. I love the sound of the one with the banana in it – might have to try a mincemeat tart this Christmas!
