Who doesn’t like mincemeat pie? When I was growing up, I didn’t like it at all. At all. My mother makes mincemeat pies for Christmas every year. Because of our strict diet, they didn’t contain any sugar or fat at all. Well, I am now an adult and I think I am finally able to appreciate the sweet taste of mincemeat pie. It’s beautiful!
Today I am going to share with you a None Such Mincemeat Pie Recipe which is extremely delicious. Mincemeat pie is small, sweet, and ever so slightly savory. It’s quite popular in England, where it is eaten at Christmas. Mincemeat pie is also known by many other names, including mince pie, beef pie, and beef and plum pudding. Mincemeat pie has a sweet, slightly tart taste along with a hint of cloves.
This recipe for mincemeat pie was developed in the 19th century. It’s a dish unique to England, made with the meat of the guinea pig, ham hocks, pork & beef suet. The combination of meat, suet and egg yolks gives this pie its rich flavor. To make mincemeat, you should use guinea pig because it has very juicy meat, which rejuvenates the flavor of the other ingredients. If you use ham hocks, the ham flavor is also enhanced because it has a higher fat content.
