Whisky Christmas Mincemeat - Suet Free

Whisky Christmas Mincemeat - Suet Free

Yes, you read right. Please don't hate me - I've started on the Christmas recipes. I had to. I couldn't hold it off any longer. Despite thoroughly disagreeing with the shops being full of Christmas things in September I've been wanting to bake everyhting to do with Christmas. It's October now anyway and the Christmas round ups start next month anyway so if you think about it I'm not that early. 

In my defence, this stuff is delicious. Like, pack it into the jars then stand there eating it right back out of the jars delicious. Who cares if you get drunk off the fumes? (I didn't by the way, I got the lids on quick and didn't eat as much as I wanted to.)
