The perfect Mince Meat Recipe by Nevie-Pie…

Part 1… Mince Meat Recipe…

Hello, we have another cracking recipe to share with you by the lovely Natasha from Nevie-Pie Cakes, for our Thursday Xmas Treats! The perfect mince meat to go into your mince meat pies – Yum!

Next week, she will kindly share with us her recipe for the perfect pastry for these pies- just in time to put it all together for Christmas!


This is a great recipe if you only want to make a couple of batches of mince pies. Most other recipes I have found made enough to last me for years! 

It is a simple recipe but go ahead and add spices or alcohol to make it more to your taste. 


50g dried cranberries

50g dried blueberries

50g mixed peel

50g cherries washed dried and chopped

150g currants

125g raisins

125g sultanas

100g suet

100g grated cooking apple

150g dark brown sugar


Bung (yes that’s a technical term) everything into a bowl, stir and then spoon into a jar. Cover with a lid and leave for a week before using.

Next week we will share with you part two, the pastry and then BOOM Mince pie magic!

Thanks Natasha! Xx
