Stephanie Alexander's Christmas mincemeat

all details

If I have a jar of brandied cumquats on hand, a few fruits can be chopped into the mix together with a little of the liqueur. A jar of Christmas mince is a lovely gift.

Ingredients

  • 2.5kg new season's crisp eating apples, peeled and cored and chopped in the food processor
  • 375ml apple juice
  • 500g seeded raisins
  • 500g currants
  • 500g grated beef suet (weighed after grating, you should order 750g)
  • 750g soft brown sugar
  • 500g mixed peel
  • 1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 100mL brandy, plus extra brandy

Method

Place all the ingredients in a stockpot and bring to the boil. Simmer for one hour, stirring every 15 minutes or so.

Spoon directly into hot, sterilised jars, splash a little extra brandy in each jar and seal. Store for at least one year.

Makes about six 500g jars.
