Christmas Mincemeat (Vegetarian)


Mincemeat

This recipe makes enough mincemeat to fill approx 50 mince pies. If you would prefer to use suet just omit the melted butter from the recipe.

MINCEMEAT

To make 2 Ib of Vegetarian mincemeat you will need:


Ingredients:
450g (1 Ib) mixed dried fruit
100g (4oz) melted butter
100g (4oz) cooking apples or apple of choice - peeled and grated (weight when prepared)
100g (4oz) light brown sugar
50g -100g (2-4 oz) of chopped nuts of choice - optional
100g (4oz) glace cherries, chopped
100g (4oz) chopped candied peel
1 TSP grated lemon rind
1 TSP grated orange rind
2 TBSP lemon juice
1 TSP mixed spice
1/2 TSP ground cinnamon
4 tablespoons brandy (I used 2 TBSP brandy and 2 TBSP orange juice)

Method:
Step 1: Mix all ingredients together in a large bowl.
Step 2: Leave for 24 hours and stir occasionally.
Step 3: Sterilise 3 medium sized jam jars (wash in soapy water and put on a baking tray in a low oven for 20 minutes), pack in the mincemeat using a clean spoon, seal and store in a cool dry place.

  2. Very industrious of you, Beth! Thankfully I still have a couple of big jars left over from last year, so I shan't need to make any this year.

    Hope you're feeling better now.

  3. I've always made it with suet before but I bet the butter gives it a great flavour.
    I'm planning on making a batch soon and a Christmas pudding.

    btw I went to Ikea yesterday and I bought some of those jars..99p for the small ones!! I was gutted cos I placed that order was Lakeland earlier last week, oh well I'll have extra. But wanted to let you and anyone know that Ikea is selling these jars for cheap!

  8. Thanks for letting me know Maria - my nearest Ikea is Bristol though (a two hour drive) so the money Id have to spend in diesel to get there would make them more expensive!! Sometimes I wished I lived closer to civilisation!
