I haven't made this mincemeat for a couple of years, because I have discovered that Waitrose's all-butter mince pies are much better than the ones I make :-) I do also use it to make a Christmas cake, but last year I had enough left to be able to do that. Now that I have finally run out, I need to make another batch!
This is Delia's mincemeat recipe, which you can find here. I miss out the almonds because I don't like nuts and I also peel the apples - she says you don't have to, but I don't like the little bits of peel in my teeth LOL. I also can't recommend her suggestion that veggie suet is just as good, because the result is just horrendous and I had to throw it away. Other peoples' experience may differ, of course ...... :-)
Here are all the ingredients mixed up and ready for the oven:
It'll take some time to cool enough to pot up, so I'll share the finished result with you tomorrow. In the meantime, my house smells wonderful :-)
