No. Quantity Item

500 grams veal

6 whole pitted prunes

10 whole pitted dates

100 grams raisins

50 grams pine nuts

2 2 hard boiled eggs

0.5 tsp mace

0.5 tsp white pepper

0.5 tsp nutmeg

6 whole cloves


1. Slice the veal into strips and boil it with a dash of vinegar and a pinch of salt. Hard boil and cool two eggs. While they boil, mince the prunes, dates, raisins and pine nuts and mix in a bowl. Mince the veal and mash the eggs when they are done, and add them to the bowl. Then add the spices and mix the lot thoroughly.
2. Using your favourite shortcrust pastry, after first greasing the muffin tray, line the molds with the pastry. Spoon in the filling, and cover with more pastry.
3. Cook in a medium oven for 25 minutes (fan forced convection) or a bit longer in a conventional oven. When the pastry is golden brown it is done. Serve it first (not fourth, that's too long to wait!).
