Fruit mince: I have made this at home. I like a combination of apples and pears along with currants and commercial candied peel. Last time I used organic pear juice from a box to cover the chopped fruit in a saucepan, and simmered it with spices but NO sugar. It was great. I used 1 kg apple, 1kg crisp pears, 1 kg total (currants and peel). Put this up into jars and it will keep in the refrigerator for a month.
Here's the link for the book. Check your public library for it.
