I purchased many jars of sweet mincemeat last month when they were reduced from £1 to only 5p a jar - that meant I got 20 jars for only £1 - now that is a bargain!
I had made many sweet mincemeat pies and wanted to do something different and a friend suggested baked apples stuffed with sweet mincemeat. (PS I purchased vegan product).
5 Apples (doesn't need to be baking apples)
200g of Mincemeat
Remove the core from the apples and then slice the top of the apple off. Then remove extra apple from the middle to leave enough room to stuff it.
Stuff the hole with the sweet mincemeat.
Add a little bit of butter to the apple too then place the top part of the apple on top.
Place into an ovenproof dish and add a few tablespoons of water to the dish.
Place into an oven for about 45 minutes. 180, 360, 4
Serve with a choice of either honey, custard or ice-cream.
