I was asked for the recipe, so I may as well make it fully public to all my friends, not just John

Here's the link:

What I did was based on that, but with quantities more like "what I have got left?", ending up as
350g Cox apples after the waste was chopped off (I didn't skin them), chopped in my mini food processor
A 500g bag of dried mixed fruit, a variety with no peel.
2 tsp Sainsburys mixed spice (mixes vary a lot from shop to shop)
420 ml of an extremely dry cider
1 1/2 tbsp brandy

No added sugar.

As it says:

1. Grate the apple and put into a pan with the mixed dried fruit. Add the mixed spice and cider and stir well.

2. Simmer for about 20 minutes until the liquid has almost gone and the mixture is soft and pulpy.

3. Stir in the brandy, whisky or rum and leave to cool.

That made enough to fill about 1 3/4 jam jars.
