  • ½ c dried apricots, chopped

  2. Remove the mixture from the heat and stir in the brandy.*
  3. Place the mixture in an air-tight container and store in the refrigerator for at least 2 weeks before using, to let the flavors meld.
  4. This will keep in the fridge 2-3 months.

Recipe Notes
*If you do not want alcohol in your finished mincemeat, you can either heat the brandy with the fruit mixture to a good simmer, to cook off the alcohol, or use fresh apple cider instead.
