I made some mincemeat last year just flying by the seat of my pants...it was good. I still would like an old tried and true recipe from years past.
Ilene, did you mention having one once? Anyone? Susan, how about you? Mincemeat pie ranks right up there with raisin....then there are mincemeat turnovers (baked), and cookies.
Mine last year just included raisins, apples, candied cherries, candied orange peel, oranges (skin and all) some frozen peaches....a little hard cider, some cooked down cider. I cooked it all down very low and then let it ripen on the porch in a crock before freezing. I didn't include meat in it...I don't like the stringiness that meat gave grandma's. I don't think Mom always used meat, but maybe she did.
