…to make fruit mince tarts:
My mother has always made numerous batches of tarts, every year for as long as I can remember. Now I live a long way away, and don’t always get to Canberra for Christmas, so I asked her for her recipe a few years ago, and started making my own. They’ve become part of my Christmas season traditions, and, although we are going to Canberra this year, I made this batch today, as we had some friends over for afternoon tea.
Maybe I’ll take another batch to Canberra with me, to see how they compare to Mum’s!
