Start with the pastry, by placing all the dry ingredients into a bowl and rub the butter into the flour and sugar until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add a little water and bring the pastry together into a dough – wrap in clingfilm and place in the fridge for 30 min.

Place all the fruit, spices, sugar and zest into a bowl and stir together – set aside and pre-heat the oven to 170C.

Roll out half the dough onto a well floured surface, then line your pie dish with the dough.

Pour the mixed fruit into the pie dish, then roll out the remaining dough and lay it on top, crimp the edges of the pie and make a hole in the centre with a knife – brush an egg wash over the pastry and sprinkle with a little caster sugar.

Bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes or until the pastry is golden brown, then remove from the oven and allow to cool for a while before tucking in!

Eat and of course, enjoy!
