Where’s the full recipe - why can I only see the ingredients?

Always check the publication for a full list of ingredients. An Eat Your Books index lists the main ingredients and does not include 'store-cupboard ingredients' (salt, pepper, oil, flour, etc.) - unless called for in significant quantity.

Notes about this recipe

    Great mincemeat recipe - prefer it to a suet-based one. Totally delicious and - the real bonus - gluten-free too. The apples work really well as the binder. While the recipe says to rough chop the apples, I would advise cutting them small to start with as it can take a while for them to stew down completely. I used a fortified wine instead of brandy and this worked fine.
