How to make it
- Make the mincemeat at least two weeks before you intend to use it.
- Mince together or finely chop the dried fruits, peeled and cored apples, and the nuts.
- Add the sugar, spice and enough brandy or rum to give a moist mixture.
- It should not be too wet; more spirits can always be stirred in before using if the mincemeat has been kept for rather a long time and dried up slightly.
- Cover and leave to stand for 48 hours.
- Stir well and put into jars. Cover and store for at least two weeks.
