About this recipe: Here is a classic mincemeat recipe without any suet. You can mix up the dried fruits a bit, substituting dried cranberries, cherries or blueberries for some of the raisins and sultanas. Perfect for your mince pies at Christmas!
This homemade mincemeat recipe was so easy to make. I've yet to use it - still waiting a few weeks! - but it tastes and smells gorgeous so far! I am sure it'll be fabulous in my mince pies for Christmas. Since it is so easy, next time I will double the recipe and give smaller jars as food gifts! - 18 Nov 2011
An excellent recipe; I pulse everything in the processor for a few moments making sure it's not too mushy before adding the brandy. I particularly like Delia Smith's oaty recipe for my mince slices as pastry is not a favourite in our house. - 28 Nov 2012
Easy to do and tastes great. I doubled the recipe with no problems. - 19 Nov 2013
