Except for the brandy, combine all ingredients in a large heavy bottomed saucepan or Dutch oven. heat and stir over high heat until a full boil is reached.Reduce heat to low. Continue to cook uncovered, stirring occasionally for 1 1/2 hours or until most of the liquid is gone. Cool to room temperature.

Notes

Once you try this recipe you may never return to using store bought mincemeat again!Commercial varieties just don't have the aroma or citrus flavour this one has. The relatively small amount of ground bison meat used gives the mincemeat just the right amount of heartiness. Try it warm over vanilla ice cream or use in pies and tarts.

This recipe makes enough for 2 large deep-dish pies, or up to 6 dozen tarts.
