      Please note that the TM5 mixing bowl has a larger capacity than the TM31 (capacity of 2.2 liters instead of 2.0 liters for TM 31). Recipes for the Thermomix TM5 may not be cooked with a Thermomix TM31 for safety reasons without adjusting the quantities. Risk of scalding by spraying of hot liquids: Do not exceed the maximum filling quantity and observe the filling level markings of the mixing bowl!

Recipe's preparation

  1. Gentle stir settingPlace apple into mixing bowl. Chop 5 seconds speed 5. Transfer into a bowl and set aside.
  2. Place all remaining ingredients into mixing bowl. Chop 5 secs/speed 5. Scrape down sides of bowl. Chop 5 secs/speed 5.
  3. Add reserved apple. Mix 10 seconds reverse speed 3, using spatula through hole in lid to aid mixing.
  4. Pour mince into a bowl, cover and leave in a cool place for 2 days, stirring occasionally.
  5. Pack into sterilized jars and seal well. Leave to mature for one month before using as you would traditional fruit mince. I use sweet shortcrust pastry to make fruit mince tarts with this dark chocolate, fig and ginger filling.

Use good quality dark chocolate (I recommend Whittaker’s 72% dark Ghana chocolate)
Because turbo is so powerful be sure to peek through the hole in the lid between turbos to make sure you haven’t gone too far. Less is more!!
Allow to mature for at least a month. It definitely gets better with age!
