4 oz Currants

4 oz Raisins
4 oz Sultanas
2 oz Cooking dates
2 oz Candied peel
2 oz Glace cherries
2 oz Flaked almonds
1 Ripe banana, peeled
4 tb Brandy or whisky
1/2 ts Ground ginger

8 oz Flour
4 oz Shortening
6 tb Cold water

MINCEMEAT: Mix everything together either by hand or, if you desire a
smoother texture, in a food processor. PASTRY: Rub shortening into the
flour until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs. Add enough flour to
enable the pastry to hold together. Roll out pastry & cut into 12 cm
circles. Press circles into the bottom of lightly oiled baking tins. Fill
with mincemeat & cover with another pastry circle. Press down at the edges
& make a small steam hole in the top. Bake for 10 minutes at 400F, 200C Gas

tin once they are solid. Mincemeat will keep for 1 week covered in the
fridge. Makes 36 pies
