Slow Cooker Mincemeat (v)

I am falling seriously in love with my slow cooker. This recipe is great, very easy and no fuss at all.

For about 6-8 jars (so oodles of pies…) you need:
450g bramley apples, finely chopped (cored but not peeled)
225g shredded veggie suet
250g raisins
250g sultanas
250g currants
250g chopped mixed peel
250g glace cherries
50g flaked almonds
350g dark soft brown sugar
grated zest and juice of 2 lemons and 2 oranges
4 tsp ground mixed spice
1 tsp ground cinnamon
2/3 grated nutmeg
250ml southern comfort
250ml sweet sherry

Place everything into the slow cooker crock and cover with a lid and leave overnight to mingle. The next day, place in a slow cooker on low for 6 hours, stirring after about three to ensure all the suet melts evenly. Leave to cool slightly and then pac into sterilised jars. Use as you wish.
