Ingredients

  • 2 1/2

    lbs beef stew meat

  • 5

    lbs Granny Smith apples

  • 3/4

    lb beef suet, coarsely ground

  • 1 1/2

    lb dark raisins

  • 1/2

    lb mixed candied peel, chopped

  • 1

    lb brown sugar

  • 1

    cup distilled white vinegar

  • 1/2

    cup molasses

  • 1

    lb currants

  • 1

    cup apple juice

  • 1 1/2

    tsp ground cloves

  • 1 1/2

    tsp ground nutmeg

  • 1 1/2

    tsp ground allspice

  • 1 1/2

    tsp cinnamon

Directions

1. Place stew meat in 4 quart pot and add just enough water to cover. Bring to a boil and simmer 1 hour. Drain meat and grind coarse. 2. Place ground meat in an 8 quart pot along with all remaining ingredients. Stir together and bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer gently for 1 hour, stirring the mixture occasionally. Allow to cool. 3. The filling is ready to use or pack into 1 quart conning jars and freeze for later use. 4. It makes a great gift. My Notes: 1. Make sure the canning jars are very clean - just coming from a hot dish washer. 2. Can freeze in other freezer appropriate containers.
