1. Put the prunes into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until
roughly chopped (or chop by hand). Tip into a large roasting tin.
Cut the apples into large chunks, then pulse in the processor until
well chopped. Add to the prunes, then stir in the rest of the dried
fruit, peel, spices and sugar. Pour over 200 ml Armagnac, stir well,
then cover the tin with foil.

2. Sit the roasting tin over a very low heat (use the two smallest
burners on your hob on their lowest setting) and leave for 15 mins,
stirring every 5 mins until the sugar has dissolved and the mix is
glossy. Leave to cool completely.

3. Mix the suet into the fruit, then add the remaining 100ml
Armagnac. Spoon into sterilised jars (see Know-how, above) and
before sealing, add another splash of the Armagnac. Seal and keep
for up to 1 year.

If you’re making mincemeat ahead of time, it’s best to get as much
moisture in as possible so that it doesn’t dry out. I’ve added
readytoeat prunes to the usual apple, dried fruit and spice mix,
plus a liberal helping of Armagnac. Gentle cooking plumps up the
dried fruit and lets the spices and sugar permeate for a really
fruity, flavoursome jarful. Use it straight away or keep it in a
cool place for up to a year.‘ Jane Hornby, Deputy food editor
