Homemade is so much better than store-bought and this recipe is a breeze - you don't even have to cook it. Makes a good-sized batch - enough to for 3-4 pies or a plethora of tasty tarts (then you can stir it into pancake batter, muffins, cakes....)

I couldn't find candied peel so I made my own. I think that for this recipe the quality of the ingredients are paramount. I'm not a fan of mincemeat but dh loves it. I will be making this again in for Christmas gifts for my mincemeat loving family.
