Selling - is there a way around this?

A local person has asked for someone to make her some Christmas fare. I make wonderful mincemeat and have said I will do her some. It is not cheap, not the way I make it, anyway! She is happy to pay but I don't have any kind of food hygiene certificate and no public indemnity insurance. Would it be ok for her to pay for it? To be honest I don't mind only charging for the ingredients but if I could make a couple of quid that would be good.
What do you think?

Obviously I would be super-aware of hygiene

You can do an online food hygiene course however probably only worth it if you think you might do these things more often. You could give her a list of ingredients to buy, or buy them and give her the receipt and ask for reimbursement. I did that when I made a cake for someone. I made it clear that I didn't expect any payment. Iirc she gave me a gift voucher as a thank you.

Thanks. I have just been looking at an online course, they are only about £20 but that jar off mincemeat would have to be an expensive one!!

When DH was looking into it, he just had a guy come round and assess the kitchen for hygiene etc - quick and simple. Never went anywhere mind so I'm no expert.
