  • You can't beat an eccles cake for year round mincemeat perfection.

    you could really upset some northern monkeys on here with that slur. Eccles are currants with a side of currants.. start claiming those filthy sultanas are getting in with their currants and they might get all EDL

  • currants....raisins......what is the difference, I muscat?

  • currants are smaller and chewy-er. I think.

  • The beauty of a pure currant eccles cake.....oh gosh

  • Managed to get the last box in Aldi's me and OLC snaffled most of the box over the weekend. Also got some Gluhwien and Lebkuchen from there, all excellent.

    Had the sainos ones last week, too sharp.

  • Have to put this thread on ignore, I am salivating!

  • The beauty of a pure currant eccles cake.....oh gosh

    http://stjohnsbakery.com/ <- love the ones from here. Used to buy them all the time from Neals Yard in Borough until they hiked the prices, now I go direct to the source.

    Currants.
    Grapes.

    Raisins and sultanas. Slightly trickier.

    I'd smash an eccles cake right about now.

    Gregg's mince pies were clear winners last year. Word has it that Aldi are onto a winner this year too.

    Offtopic but.... Lidl Stollen. Fuck me!

  • ^^^ In that case mrs-ru will shortly be making mince pies with our home-dried currants. Nice and sharp with an extra crunch from the pips. Yummy.

  • sultanas ftw

  • Fuck it. Dried fruit. All of it.

  • But puff pastry is a no-go area?

    sniff

  • It reminds me of my dear old mum's mince pies.

    I miss her so
