Mix together all the ingredients, apart from the brandy, in an ovenproof dish, cover with foil and leave overnight in a cool place.
The next day, preheat the oven to 110 C / 225 F / gas mark 1/4. Place the dish in the preheated oven for 3 hours. Remove from the oven, add the brandy and then leave to cool, stirring every now and again. When the mincemeat is cold pack into sterilised jars and store in a cool place until required.
