  1. Combine all of the ingredients, except the brandy, in a large saucepan and cook very gently over a low heat for 2 hours, stirring occasionally.
  2. Remove from the heat, stir in the brandy and mix well. As the mincemeat continues to cool, stir frequently, so that the suet is evenly distributed.
  3. Transfer the mixture into sterilised jars and seal immediately. Store in the fridge or in a cool dark place for up to 6 months or until needed.
