What you need:

6 1/2 lb /3kg strawberries, hulled, halved
6 1/2 lb / 3kg white sugar
Juice from 1/2 a lemon

What you do:

First of  all wash and sterilise the  jars and lids that you will use.

In a large saucepan, put in the strawberries and sugar & mix all together.

Leave for a couple of hours so the sugar can soften all the fruit.

Add the lemon juice then simmer over medium heat, stirring all the time untilall the fruit is soft.

Remove 1/3 of the fruit & leave to one side.

Keep simmering the remaining mixture until fruit is mostly dissolved & the  jam coats the back of a spoon.

Divide the fruit that was put to one side  between the jars then fill with jam.

Allow to cool, then seal with the lids.

Keep refridgerated.

What you need:
12 oz/350 g plain flour
8oz/ 225 g butter, cubed or an half & half mix of margarine and lard
1 beaten egg + 1 cold water as needed
1 jar of mincemeat
icing sugar ( to dust )

To make the pastry…

Place the flour, butter  into a large clean bowl.
Rub the butter into the flour with your fingertips until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs, working as quickly as possible to prevent the dough becoming warm.
Add the egg to the mixture and using a cold knife stir, add cold water a teaspoon at a time until the mixture binds but don’t make it too wet that it is sticky.
Dust a work surface lightly with a little flour and roll out two-thirds of the pastry to 1/8″/3mm thick. Cut circles to line the cups of your tin, don’t worry if the pastry doesn’t come to the top.
Fill the pastry lined tins 2/3 full with mincemeat.
Roll out the remaining pastry to the same thickness and cut smaller circles to fit as lids on the tarts or to be decorative, cut stars or other fancy shapes.
Dampen the edges of the tart bases with a little cold water and press the lids on. Make a small hole in the surface of each pie with a small sharp knife to allow the steam to escape.
Bake in the preheated oven for 20 mins or until golden brown. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the icing sugar.
