    Can you buy mincemeat filling at the store in Croatia?

    Here's a recipe for homemade mincemeat(I haven't tried this):

    Homemade Mincemeat:

    2 large Golden Delicious apples, peeled and grated

    1 -12 ounce (1 1/2 cups) (340 grams) can frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed

    1 cup (85 grams) dried apples, chopped

    3/4 cup (120 grams) dark raisins

    3/4 cup (120 grams) golden raisins

    3/4 cup (90 grams) dried currants

    3/4 cup (105 grams) dried cranberries

    2/3 cup (120 grams) mixed candied peel

    1/3 cup (60 grams) candied lemon peel

    1/2 cup (105 grams) dark brown sugar

    1/2 cup (120 ml) dark rum

    1/2 cup (120 ml) brandy or cognac

    4 tablespoons (57 grams) unsalted butter

    1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

    1/2 teaspoon ground allspice

    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg

    1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

    1/4 teaspoon salt

    Mincemeat: Place all the ingredients in a large Dutch oven, and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring often. Then, reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer the mincemeat, stirring often, for about 25 - 30 minutes, or until the liquid is almost evaporated. Transfer the mincemeat to a large bowl and let it cool completely. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the refrigerator, at least overnight, or up to a month. Note: If storing longer than a week, stir in a little rum or brandy (about 1/4 cup (60 ml)) every week.

    Makes about 6 cups of Mincemeat.

    WHOA! We have pre-made mincemeat in a jar here, but I bet a homemade recipe would be WAY better.

    There was one year when I couldn't find any pre-made mincemeat, so I made it myself without a recipe. I think I came pretty close - no currents or cranberries though!

    this sounds delicious! I wonder if they would work in different shapes like stars or christmas trees or gingerbread men?
