Quick Mincemeat Filling
Makes 1 cup
  • Zest and juice of 1 orange (131 grams)
  • ½ cup (64 grams) sultanas
  • ½ cup (64 grams) raisins
  • ¼ cup (55 grams) firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon (2 grams) mixed spice*
  • 2 tablespoons (30 grams) spiced rum
  1. In a small saucepan, combine orange zest and juice, sultanas, raisins, brown sugar, and mixed spice. Cook over medium-high heat until sugar is dissolved and liquid has reduced and become syrupy. Remove from heat, and stir in rum. Cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until ready to use. When fully cooled, mixture should be thick like caramel. If too loose, it needs to cook slightly longer.
