Could you please scale down the quantities of ingredients for just 1 pie? I might like to try it, but I'm 65 years old and live alone, so I don't need 10 pies! Thanks.
I loved my grandma's mincemeat pie. I remember hers had apples, cherries and pineapple along with the meat. I need to take this recipe and add what I remember and get to making some pies!
The recipe looks delicious! What is the weight equivalent for the boxes of raisins and currants?
MMMMM.... yum! My mom always made mincemeat pie for the holidays. I didn't like it as a kid, but I sure miss it now! So different than the meatless mince'meat' pies. Her recipe was handed down from my great grandma, and also made about a dozen pies. She would freeze the extra in quart size portions. One of the most important ingredients is the suet. Make sure you get real suet, which is a special, hard fat around the kidneys. It won't come out the same with 'regular' fat. You may have to order it special.
