  1. Mincemeat

  2. One quart

  3. You can swap out any finely-diced fruits, like I did, although to be close to authentic, it should be pretty raisin-heavy. I've seen recipes using everything from dried cranberries, figs, and prunes.

  4. In England, one can buy vegetarian suet , which I've never used, but folks say that it works well. I was also thinking that coconut oil might work, so if anyone experiments with that, I'd be interested in knowing the results. You can also make my Quick Mincemeat , which has no fat or animal products.

  5. 8 ounces (225 g) dark raisins

  6. 8 ounces (225 g) currants

  7. 4 ounces (110 g) golden raisins (sultanas)

  8. 1 large, firm apple; unpeeled, quartered, cored, and diced

  9. 2 ounces (55 g) candied orange peel, chopped

  10. 4 ounces (110 g) suet, grated or finely-chopped

  11. 1 cup (215 g) packed light brown sugar

  12. 1/2 teaspoon (each) ground cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg & allspice

  13. zest and juice of one lemon

  14. zest and juice of one orange

  15. 3 tablespoons brandy
