Question about Delia's mincemeat

Have made this for years but this year forgot the timings! How essential is the 12 hour soak/sit before cooking?

Mincemeat

Not entirely essential, but it gives time for the fruit to plump up a bit.

The same goes for pudding mixture and I always wash and drain and dry the weighed vine fruits for the cake too.

soaking fruit for mincemeat


even a 2 hour soak is ample enough. I have been known to leave to soak for 3 days prior to making as something has come up and i not gotten round to making the next day.

but it is suggested to plump the fruit up, making a much tastier and juicier mixture.
