Well you can't have a best mince pie pastry ever threat without the mince to go in it lol

500g currants
500g raisins
500g sultanas
juice and rind of 1 orange and 1 lemon
1 packet of veggie suet
500g sugar
1tsp mixed spice
750g cooking apples grated

(you could also add flaked almond to this if you like 2oz)

For the alcohol I use vodka lol (Im not an alcoholic honestly) or you could use whisky, brandy, rum, sherry etc...put as much alcohol as the fruit will take, I usually add about 6 tablespoons on the first day and then keep adding 1 tablespoon for 5 days, this keeps well in the fridge and you can freeze it.
