that's how i ended up making mincemeat. the ingredients were very similar to those used in the xmas pudding from earlier this week.
but instead of being steamed into some flour concoction, all the fruit and stuff gets baked for 2.5 hours in a low temp oven. this is the resulting mess.
it's strangely tasty and it's now in a jar waiting to be turned into mincemeat pies.
know what else i made? fucking mulled wine. ya know what additional booze i added to it? fucking cherry bounce that i made in feb.
that shit was dangaroose. it was also exciting to make as you can see from this video. (warning: camera dancing, possible chance of seasickness at the end)
