This is a recipe from which I have modified slightly. The 900g mixed dried fruit refers to anything but sultanas, raisins or currants. I used crystallised ginger, dried peaches, dried figs, glace mixed peel, dried papaya, dried dates and dried pineapple. You can use anything you like (for instance dried mango sounds nice but it was too expensive here).To prepare the tin I lined it with 4 sheets of newspaper, then 2 sheets of heavy brown paper, greasing the uppermost sheet. Some people also put damp newspaper around the outside of the tin & tie this with string to secure it, but I didn't have any string. Finally, if you do not want to use alcohol, orange juice is fine in place of the brandy.(Time does not include fruit marinating time).
