Recipe by Sydney Mike
This simple recipe was clipped from a local newspaper about 6 years ago. The tartness of the cranberries nicely balances the spicy sweetness of the mincemeat.

A veritable winner from the mincemeat kitchens in California! LOVED this Syd! I made this for guests on Saturday night and we all wolfed it down............I liked the extra tartness of the cranberries against the richness of the mincemeat. A winner and a LOVELY vibrant colour too! Made for the Aussie/NZ recipe swap - merci encore. FT:-)
