Fruit Mince - Cooking in the Chaos

Home made fruit mince will make your fruit mince pies taste amazing. I make a batch of this every year and keep it in the fridge, then when I feel like pies I just make some pastry and the filling is ready to go. It freezes really well too, either before baking it or after …

I have been so excited about sharing this recipe, because fruit mince pies are one of my favourite Christmas foods. Everything about them just says ‘Christmas’.

This is another super simple but ultra delicious and easy recipe that makes a great gift. Use a nice jar and some ribbon or twine, and hey presto, a lovely gift that tastes amazing too. I use this sauce as a topping for ice-cream, to pour over puddings or cakes, in tarts, to flavour milkshakes, …

Lemon Curd - Cooking in the Chaos

You can use any citrus to flavour this buttery treat, lemon is of course perfect, but I have also used lime juice or a mix of lemon and lime. You could try orange also, which I am sure would be lovely, but I prefer the sharp tang that lemons (and limes) offer. I have been …

I can’t claim this idea as my own, but it is a good one! I have seen several variations on this theme on the internet. You can use whatever recipe you like, the overall quantities just need to be about 4 cups. I have seen some nice examples that use colourful lollies such as M&M’s …
