12 Dec

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!

Lahloo Christmas

Will we have a white Christmas this year? Well, here at Lahloo we definitely will! Not necessarily because of the snow, but more because of our delicate and elegant white teas: from the pure, clean flavour of our Snow Jewel to the honeyed notes of White Whisper or the slightly stronger roasted tones of White Peony… Perfect to relax after an exhausting afternoon of Christmas shopping!

Hopefully you’ve done all your Christmas shopping by now and you can concentrate on getting ready for the celebrations! We’ve been very busy baking cookies, biscuits and these beautiful Christmas inspired macarons: cranberry and Earl Grey mincemeat.

…And of course, huge batches of mince pies (with our Earl Grey infused mincemeat!).
