    About this recipe: With this much dried fruit in any recipe it is sweet enough, but adding more honey or treacle should sweeten the pot if required!

    Makes: 24 mince pies

    • 50g vegetable suet
    • 240g dried fruit (sultanas, raisins, dates, apricots, cranberries, etc.)
    • 60g chopped cherries
    • 1 small apple, grated
    • 1 orange or clementine, juiced and zested
    • 1 tablespoon apple puree or concentrate

    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

    Prep:15min  ›  Extra time:1day soaking  ›  Ready in:1day15min 

    1. Mix all the ingredients together and pour into a 500ml jar. Allow to soak for at least 1 day, though the longer you leave it the stronger the flavour.


    Make sure there is enough liquid to cover all the mixture - it'll soak in I promise!
