I promised mincemeat…but other than eating it by the spoonful — which I’m not averse to — what do you do with it? Make a mince pie, that’s what. I haven’t eaten one of these since I lived in Britain, lo these many years ago. But even that pie was of the modern, meatless variety. This year we’re going set the Wayback Machine to 1896, to the time when men were men and mincemeat had real meat in it. Time to dust off my copy of Fannie Farmer and find a local source of suet!
