Every year I make my own mincemeat because I think that for the most tasty mince pies and other treats during the winter festivities they have to be baked using home-made mincemeat. I don’t like using the same recipe, sometime I make the traditional one weeks, even months, ahead; other times I make a boozy one, a nutty one, instant one or easy one. This year I’ve decided to make a zesty mincemeat, full of citrus flavours (and with plenty of alcohol). This version is vegan – so it has no dairy. It’s also gluten-free and fat-free, and I’ve reduced the sugar content because the fruits provide plenty of sweetness. Furthermore, wrap up the jar nicely and you can give it as an edible Christmas gift to your friends and family!
