"My Mum's recipe from Lancashire, UK. I have taken over the yearly family tradition for making mincemeat. You will want to make this early- to mid-November to allow it to ferment and the flavors to mingle in time for Christmas."

For making a year ahead I would soak all the dried fruits in sloe gin overnight and replace the almonds with one pound of chopped dates.
