    Quincemeat

    Quincemeat

    This recipe is inspired by Nigella and an old Frances Bissell recipe. I have based it on my own traditional Christmas mincemeat recipe which I make every October, the recipe being handed down through my family. The ratio of quinces versus the usual cooking apples is greater in this adaption and so the storing time may be reduced. I keep my quincemeat in the fridge but a cool larder would do. I have a test jar in my pantry so will report back at some stage on its' keeping quality. This recipe will make about 4 kg and is best made in a mincer if you have one. If not a food processor will do, but go steady and don't over process or you will have pulpmeat.

    A fresh and summery salad which is just delicious by itself or as part of a mezze style meal. Tabbouleh is usually made with bulghur wheat but quinoa makes a great change and is also gluten free.
