I’d be prepared to wager that mincemeat is one of the most commonly used ingredients during the festive season. It’s simply impossible to imagine just how many mince pies we, in the West, manage to consume in the latter month of the year. However, I’d also prepared to bet that 95% of mince pie consumers do not make their own mincemeat. This isn’t an attack against the lack of self-sufficiency countries like Britain experience today, it is merely the thought process behind my first ever batch of homemade mincemeat. It is generally accepted that food made in the home has the superior taste and is better for you. Mincemeat is no exception to the rule.
