This charmingly rustic galette (also known as a free-form pie) makes great use of left over sweet mincemeat. The mixture is bulked out with apple which contains no additional sugar. Decorated with a few slices of apple, this mincemeat & apple galette makes a lovely midweek dessert.
Four weeks post Christmas, I can now confirm that all of our sweet mincemeat has been used!
After the Christmas period I often find that we have half a jar, or so, of mincemeat lurking in the back of the fridge, hiding behind the yogurts and cheeses! It sits there for days, which soon become weeks, being ignored and over looked. Not wanting to waste it, after all there is nothing wrong with it, the question is what use with this fruity mixture.
In fact there are several recipes which can be rustled up with half a jar of mincemeat, most of which are a far cry from the traditional mincepie. How do flapjacks, chocolate brownies, cupcakes or even stuffed apples grab you? (Further into the post you will find links to 6 recipes by UK bloggers perfect for using up left over sweet mincemeat.)
