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.

Ingredients:
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
