I found this recipe in my old 1949 Cookbook and wanted to post it for those of you that have never eaten mincemeat and would like to try and make it. My Mother used to make mincemeat and can it and I can remember how delicious it was. You can also buy a box of None_such mincemeat and it is very good also. I have not made this recipe so it isnt tried and true.
