Mince Pie Fillings

Updated: Dec 18, 2023

Well, I know it is still very early, but, these mince pie fillings take quite some time to ferment, so, why not? Yes, instead of Xmas Cake (which is my household tradition), I am planning on making Mince Pie this 2023. This is super easy to put together and I am pretty sure you have most of the ingredients on hand. So, do not buy any store-bought mince pie fillings and make this instead. See ya on Xmas.

  • Red Gala Apples / Honeycrisp Unpeeled Cored Coarsely Diced, 2

  • Fresh Orange Zest, 1 Orange

  • Fresh Orange Juice, 1 Orange

  • Fresh Lemon Juice, 1 Lemon

  • Dried Fruit Mix, 500g A Combination of Raisins, Sultanas, Currants and Dried Apricots

  • Lard / Beef Suet, 250g

  • Light Muscovado Sugar, 250g

  • Hazelnuts / Almonds, 25g

  • Cookie Spice Blend Homemade, 1 TSP

  • Brandy / Rum, 65g

  • Cointreau / Grand Marnier, 50g



  • Sterilized Jars



  1. Please visit my "Cookie Spice Blend" page for the recipe.

  2. Transfer apples, orange zest, juice, lemon zest and juice into a large mixing bowl.

  3. Mix until well combined.

  4. Add in the rest of the ingredients.

All the yummiliciousness...
