Spread on defrosted pastry sheets and roll up as for pin wheels.Cut whatever thickness you like and bake.

Use in shortcake mix instead of apple.

Add to muffin mix.

It will keep if you don't open it, I used one this year 'best before end 1995'! It was Devine, I think t was the brandy in it which preserved it.

Keep it.It keeps from one year to the next when it is treated to a capful of brandy or rum every 4mths or so, with the last given just before Xmas.I do this every year, buy 2 or 3 jars in the new year, and feed it till the end of the year.Keep in the fridge and mark when you feed on the top of the lid.Yum

Other ideas, could bepinwheel scones.Pastry swirls or yeast bread buns with a spoonful in the centre or rolled as per scones, topped with pink icing. Eccles cakes (sp)Good luck

Why not just use it for fruit mince pies!I usually add a grated apple to mine and a splash of brandy but you can add orange juice and grated rind instead.This year I added the juice, rind and pulp of an orange, some dried and fresh cranberries and a splash of brandy

Soften a 2ltr tub of vanilla ice cream, mix 4 tbsp fruit mince in thoroughly then refreeze. Serve on a baked apple or an apple pie - delicious!

It keeps though - so shove it back in the pantry ready for Mid-Winter Christmas!
