Apple-free mince pie filling?

Apologies if this has been answered somewhere before, I'm new to the forum and couldn't find anything similar.

I've an intolerance to apples and would like very much to make an apple-free alternative filling for my mince pies.

Have you a suggestion what I should / could use instead?

Hello LancashireHP,

I think pears would work.

Thank you very much for your suggestion. I will give pears a try...will make a small batch first just to be sure!

Apple-free mincemeat

Hello again,

Please let us know how it goes. It may need more lemon juice as the pears will be sweeter than the Bramleys.

Good luck

Apple-free mince pie filling

I've now found Delia's mincemeat recipe with cranberries, which has a lot less apples than the traditional recipe, so I'm hoping pears may work with this... if I give it a go, I'll let you know what happens! Thanks very much for your help :-)
