    I have been using this recipe for years at least 25 I use all the ingredients other than the suet I make the mincemeat a year in advance place in in kilner jars and add alcohol every 2/3 months to ensure it does not dry out. My Schwartz " Christmas Season" has now disintegrated but i have managed to save this and the Christmas pudding recipe to use each year
