Fruit mince is best made a good couple of weeks (and up to a year) in advance. This allows plenty of time for the flavours to develop and for the fruit to absorb the liquid.

Recipe Notes

Sit aside for 1-2 weeks before use for best results. Due to the high sugar content and the alcohol this will store as is for up to a year (or more) in the fridge.

If you prefer instead of bought fruit mix you can use your own blend of raisins, currants, glace cherries and mixed peel.

You can use a mixture of the alcohols or you can replace it with orange juice if you prefer a non alcoholic fruit mince.
