I make this every year & I add about a cup of mixed peel (sometimes called citron), currants & a cup of grated apple. I also use butter & brown sugar & do not add the nuts as my kids did not like them. I add either a 1/3 c of brandy or else a tblsp of brandy/rum flavoring. I steam it for about 3 hrs in jars in my canner. You have to be sure to only fill them 2/3 full as it swells a LOT. It is my fav Xmas gift to give away. I print up the recipe for my vanilla/rum sauce & put it on the jar & add a ribbon. You can pop the whole jar in the microwave to heat it up to serve.
