However I will share with you my mincemeat recipe. I love it because it has no suet and tastes yummy. Very quick and easy to make. It is high in carbohydrates but better than the bought varieties. (It is the mixed fruit that does the damage) One or two mincepies on special occasions, using pastry made with ground almonds substituted for 2/3 of the ordinary flour required, are my treat.
500gr mixed fruit
2 tablespoons marmalade (I used ginger)
75 gr muscavado sugar (I used sweetener)
1 tsp grated or ground nutmeg
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp mixed spice (or cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and ground cloves)
1 tablespoon orange juice
3 tablespoons whisky
Jest of 2 oranges (optional)
Chop the banana, mix with the other ingredients. Stir well. Keep in a Kilner or other jar in the fridge until wanted. Enjoy.
