Mince Pie Hints Dried apples soaked in water a few hours make a very fair substitute for fresh apples in mince pies. Dried cherries and other fruit prepared with sugar can be soaked 10-12 hours in a very little water and then both water and fruit used instead of raisins. They will be much cheaper and will answer very well.
