Bramley Apple Mincemeat

This is a recipe heavily adapted from one I found on t'internet.

In a large pan melt 20g butter.
Add 850g bramley apples (peeled, cored and sliced - or chopped if you want smaller apple bits.)
Add 400ml water and cook gently for about 20 minutes.

Add 450g sugar, 300g sultanas, 300g mixed fruit, 70g mixed peel, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and the juice of a lemon.
Heat gently until sugar dissolves, then boil for about 20 minutes, until mixture is thick. Keep stirring!!

Stir in 2 tablespoons of sherry and pour into sterilised jars. (I got 4 jars worth.)


  1. That looks delicious, especially the sherry bit at the end. x

  2. I think I'm going to make this - we have a bumper crop of Bramley's this year, so it will make a nice change to the countless apple pies I make! And will also use up the many bags of fried fruit that I always seem to have lurking in the back of the cupboard :)

  3. fried fruit?? now there's a thought lol. Probably make fruit more fun!

  4. wow thank you for this! just made it without the butter though as we are dairy free and it is amazing!
