When do you eat a mince pie?

Good question, reader Nicole! In Britain, around Christmas (traditions vary as to the most auspicious time to consume one, before Christmas or after, during the 12 Days). However mincemeat itself was/is traditionally made around October so the mincemeat has time to age. Mincemeat is an Autumn – New Year’s tradition in America.
