Blimey Bunny you make mince pies, Heston B has launched a mince pie in Waitrose that you reheat and dust with pine scented sugar. A friend tried them and said they smelled like lav cleaner

Not that easy in my local ( small town) area, but I think I can get it in the bigger centers with ethnic neighborhoods. I was given some rendered suet one time at a german sausage/paste shop. They were giving each patron a small carton with their purchase. If not I would just use butter or lard.
