Totara google “preserving mandarins” There are mainly American canning
recipes but we do the water bath method here. Countdown is overflowing with them just no. here is a simple recipe from google
Satsumas: Very sweet, seedless, medium sized, free skinned
Clementines: Small, very orange, few seeds, very sweet
Canning: To extend the season of mandarins, they can be preserved as well. Peel, separate the segments, pack in jars with a sugar syrup (I add a touch of rose water) and be sure to process in a simmering hot water bath (30 minutes for pints, 35 minutes for quarts).July 4, 2012 at 1:33 pm #467283

I presume you have a favourite shortcrust pastry recipe, so will just give you the ingrdients for the filling:
350 grams lean chuck steak, finely diced, 1 small onion peeled and finely chopped, 1 potato peeled and finely diced, 1 heaped cup of butternut pumkin or swede peeled and cubed, about 1 Tblpsn ( more or less, depending on your tastes ) of beef or vegetable stock powder, 2 Tblspns of chopped flat leaf parsley, salt and pepper, beaten egg or milk to brush pastry. Make slits in pastie to let out steam.
Enough for 8 pasties. Bake in oven @ 180 oC for 15 mins, turn heat down to 160 oC for 45 min/1 hour, untill pastry is golden brown and filling is cooked.
Rump Steak would be a good meat to use, also.August 22, 2012 at 9:46 am #467287
