Must Be Love

My husband loves mince pies.

But the necessary 'mincemeat' does not exist in French food culture. You try and translate it for your neighbours - we have and they were VERY confused and bemused, I can assure you!

You cannot buy it here - unless you are prepared to drive miles and pay a king's ransom for a small jar of it.

Christmas is coming, so what does a devoted wife do?!

Make some of course!!! Surely, something with 1lb of butter and 2lb of brown sugar in it, cannot be all bad?!

I will tell you in two weeks time when it is ready to make mincepies with!
