Home made mincemeat

I love mince pies but hate the sugar content in the mincemeat so decided to make some of my own this year. It’s had a huge thumbs up so thought I’d share the recipe.

500g bag of mixed dried fruit (I went for Sainsbury’s basics which has raisins, sultanas, and citrus peel, and is only 65p)
100g chopped mixed nuts
Sml-med size carrot (peeled & grated)
Sml-med sized apple (peeled, cored & grated)
200ml fresh juice (I went for pineapple, but you could use anything in your fridge; apple, oj, etc)
50ml dark rum

– mix all the ingredients together and store in the fridge. Let the fruit soak up all the liquid for a good few days before using
