what exactly is mince meat pie? it isn’t meat, i know that much, but [what] is it?
Gag factor seems to be running high here on Home Ec 101 today.
Mincemeat is nothing more than a mixture of fruit, nuts, spices, and suet or vegetable shortening. Older recipes used to include meat, which is omitted in most modern versions. It was typically served as a course following the main course to prepare a diner for the sweetness of dessert. Today it is served mostly out of tradition. I’ll pass, thank you.
