Fruit mince: I have made this at home.  I like a combination of apples and pears along with currants and commercial candied peel.  Last time I used organic pear juice from a box to cover the chopped fruit in a saucepan, and simmered it with spices but NO sugar.   It was great.  I  used 1 kg apple, 1kg crisp pears, 1 kg total (currants and peel).  Put this up into jars and it will keep in the refrigerator for a month.

 

Here's the link for the book.  Check your public library for it.

That sounds wonderful, I will certainly try it.

Much appreciate the link for the book.

That is very interesting about you studying chemistry. The two people who have provided the most practical help with my daughter's allergy management ( she was so ill that she nearly died before it was correctly diagnosed), are both chemists. One is a bio-chemist, the other a chemist/physicist. They have been of immense assistance to our family in the handling of allergy problems for many years.

Again, very many thanks for your help.icon_smile.gif

Good Luck

 

Ms GF

Using this wonderful recipe suggested by MsGF, my daughter and I made the best Christmas cakes our family has ever tasted.

We had a trial baking day, as it was a new recipe, and were delighted with the results.

I will be posting the photographs I took, plus the actual recipe, next week.

Had to make a couple of ingredient changes because of daughter's food problems but they were very minor.

This was not an instance of compromise or making do: these fruit cakes were genuinely the best anyone in the family has ever tasted.

We are most grateful to MsGf for your brilliant contribution to our Christmas:thank you.

Photos will be posted next week. icon_smile.gificon_smile.gif (two happy cake-makers)
