This is another old recipe pulled from Betty's recipe box. I don't think any of us do mincemeat this way any more, but I didn't even known this was how it use to be made. Once again sometimes on these old recipes measurements aren't exact but I'll put it down how it was written. This was Betty's mothers recipe her name was Nettie Barlow. Betty is in her late 80's so that tells how old this is.
