This recipe was posted several years ago by a lady who blogged on another website I belonged to called Mixing Bowl. The lady's name is Jeannie and her signon name was Jeannieskitchen. The website kind of went belly-up, but I'm so glad I followed Jeannie and printed out her recipes, as she never posted them except in a blog.
I have made this recipe for canning and I have used the mincemeat in my posted pie recipe. It is very good and taste just like store bought mincemeat, only better. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
