Mincemeat

Here are our recipes for my mother's mincemeat (non-vegetarian) . green tomato mincemeat (vegetarian)


M&P's Mincemeat  

(freezes well)

My mother used to spend an afternoon at our church, with other parishioners, making huge vats of this mincemeat to sell to the parish. She would come home, her hands permanently black (for a day or two) from having peeled so many apples. Sadly, the church guild no longer makes these giant quantities of mincemeat. So my younger sister and mother adjusted the really huge recipe to come up with the following.

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Grind fruit up.
  2. Add spices, suet and brandy.
  3. Add apple sauce afterwards to taste.

Serve hot in pie, tarts, over shortbread, over icecream....

Alice Emery's Green Tomato Mincemeat  

Alice wrote: "I had several requests for this, so I thought others might enjoy it as well. This recipe will make enough for two 9 inch pies and you can freeze it if needed. (ie, make one pie, freeze the other portion) or, eat it in non pie form... it is heavenly!"

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Sprinkle tomatoes with salt as you layer them in a glass bowl, not metal.
  2. Cover and let stand at room temp overnight.
  3. The next morning, rinse with cold water; drain well. Chop finely.
  4. Into a large pot put the tomatoes, apples, orange, raisins, sugar, corn syrup and spices. (Alice calls for "2 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice* (enough for two 9" pies) * substitute - cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, & allspice")
  5. Cover and simmer 45 min.
  6. Uncover and boil gently for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Store tightly covered in refrigerator or store in containers & freeze.

Serve hot or cold in pie, tarts, over shortbread, over icecream....
