Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Tip all the ingredients, except the suet and ground almonds, into a large bowl and stir really well. Stir in the suet, cover with a plate or cling film and leave overnight for the fruit to plump up in the juices and brandy.

  • STEP 2

    Next day, stir thoroughly again, and if the mixture still looks very juicy, add a sprinkling of ground almonds to absorb some of the liquid. Now it is ready to jar. The mincemeat will keep for 6 months, but once open, store in the fridge.
