    • Pour the dried fruits and liquid into an airtight container and leave overnight to macerate. The following day, pour half of the dried fruit and liquid into a food processor and blend until smooth. Put the muscovado sugar in a large bowl. Sieve in the flour and mixed spice. Stir in suet and pecans.

    • Add the blended fruits along with the whole fruits and liquid. Stir in the breadcrumbs, grated beetroot, eggs and vanilla extract. Mix.

    • Pour the mixture into the tin. Cover with a double sheet of pleated baking parchment and foil and secure with string.

    • Cook in a steamer for 6 hours. Top up with boiling water every 30 mins or as needed.

    • To make the glaze, warm the pomegranate juice, brandy and honey. Combine the arrowroot with 1tbsp cold water to make a paste. Whisk into the juice. To serve, warm the glaze, drizzle over and sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and stars.
