Punjenje za Bozicne Kosarice /Mince Pies filling

Please scroll down for English

Jednostavnije je kupiti teglicu, znam neki ce se slozicete s tim, ali pripremajuci punjenje u svojoj kuhinji mnogo je sladje jer ste u mogucnosti dodati sve ono sto volite a izostaviti ono sto nevolite. A kako napraviti kosarice, pogledajte ovde. Nadjev se moze pripremiti i nekoliko nedelja pre pravljanja kolacica, spremiti u teglu, zatvoriti i drzati u frizideru.



Sastojci

1/2 solje = 125 ml


100 ml crnog vina ili Mulled wine

1/2 solje tamnog secera

250 g svezih brusnica

po 1 m.k mljevenog djumbira, cimeta i klinčića

1 mandarina

po 1/2 solje grozdjica od zutog i crnog grozdja

1/2 solje susenih brusnica


Jos potrebno

1-2 kasike vinjak, konjak ili rum

2 kasike vanila extrakta

Med do zeljenje slatkoce




Priprema

1. Vino i secer lagano zakuvati zatim dodati brusnice (ako koristite zamrznute nije ih potrebno odmrzavati) i zacine. Dodati nastruganu koricu mandarine, sok i po koji segment mandarine, poboljsace ukus.


2. Dodati suvo grozdje i brusnice i sve zajedno kuvati na laganoj vatri (kako ne bi izgubili svu tecnost) oko 20-ak minuta. Keksici ce biti lepsi ako je punjenje malo mokrije, socnije. Prohladiti pa doterati ukus kasikom meda, vinjakom, rumom ili konjakom i vanilom.


3. Recept za kosarice pogledajte ovde. Danas sam napunila 24 kosarice a ostatak fila spremila u teglicu i odlozila u frizider za neki drugi dan.


Savet

Ako zelite mozete iskoristiti sav fil, napuniti kosarice i ispeci ih, pa prohladjene spremiti u plasticne kutije sa poklopcom, svaki red odvojiti papirom za pecenje i zamrznuti. Kad ih zelite jesti ostavite ih par sati na sobnoj temperaturi da se otkrave, pospite prah secerom i posluzite.




Mince Pie filling

It may be easier to get a jar of filling from the store but making from scratch at home is super easy and you get a tastier result!

Ingredients (1/2 cup = 125 ml)


100 ml red wine or mulled wine

1/2 cup brown sugar

250 g fresh cranberries

1 tsp of ground ginger, cinnamon and clove (each)

1 tangerine

1/2 cup sultanas

1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1-2 tbsp brandy or rum

2 tbsp vanilla extract

Honey, to taste


Method

1. Bring the wine and sugar to boil in a saucepan. Once the sugar dissolves, add the cranberry and spices. If using frozen cranberries instead of fresh ones, they don't need to be defrosted. After this, add the zest, juice and a couple of segments of tangerine. Add sultanas, raisins and dry cranberries, and simmer for 20 minutes.


2. Leave to cool slightly, then add the vanilla, honey and brandy or rum. For a recipe on how to make mince pies, click here. The rest of the filling can be put in an airtight container and kept in the fridge for future use.


Tip

You can always make more pies to use up all of the filling that you have made. Once baked you can freeze them. Leave them for a couple of hours to defrost, then dust with icing sugar before serving.
