"Traditional mincemeat can be somewhat intimidating. I admit that I was a bit horrified by it when I was a kid, but that’s because I didn’t know what a lovely, warm fruit and nut flavor it had. There are any number of ways to make mincemeat, which may or may not include suet, but almost all include brandy. This is a variation of a Fergus Henderson recipe made with all local fruits and nuts. It includes suet, which is good for depth and preservation, but it can be omitted if you prefer. Either way is delicious and makes a wonderful pastry or a stuffing for roasted meats."
