Our mince pies at Lahloo Pantry are always a huge success. The secret? Really good pastry, but, above all, our incredible mincemeat, infused with zesty Lahloo Earl Grey. Here you can find out how to prepare it, ready for all your Christmas baking. Also perfect if you want to give some homemade presents to friends and family.

Ingredients

  • 500g golden sultanas
  • 500g dried cranberries
  • 500g raisins
  • 200g mixed peel
  • 250g unsalted butter
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tsp mixed spice
  • zest of 2 oranges
  • zest of 2 lemons
  • 500g dark brown sugar
  • 500ml amaretto liqueur
  • 250ml Lahloo Earl grey tea

Put all the dried fruit and spices in a bowl and mix thoroughly. Place the zest, sugar, tea and amaretto in a pan and heat gently until sugar dissolves. Pour over mixed fruit and stir gently. Cover and allow to sit for two days. After two days pack it into sterilized jars -better when they mature in a cool dark place for a few weeks!
