My Grandmother made mince meat pie. She'd buy the filling in a jar from the local grocery stores. After she had passed I found a jar of it in the cupboard. It contained venison meat. You sure won't find that today.

Update: I made the pie, it was delicious and yes, unfortunately, I was the only one that had a piece. No one else wanted to try it. There's still some left, so can can have pie for breakfast every day for the next few days.

Mincemeat? Oh, no.... The horror!!! My mother and my husband like it, so there is usually one at Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Now how about Christmas - aka Suet - pudding? Yes, there is suet in it. But not that much, really, and fat is fat is fat. Ahhh, that I love. Well, my recipe, which is more dates and less raisins. But nobody else will touch it now that Dad is gone, so that has gone by the wayside.

Default Mince Meat Pies

Many, many , many years ago min e meat was actually meat - somewhere along the line the recipe changed to chat we know now. My Dad loved mince meat pie and my grandmother (his mom) always made what was called hard sauce. Not sure why but it did contain liquor. I remember that grandma had made the hard sauce with the liquor and my grandpa either didnít know she had already added it or he thought there wasnít enough - so he added more. I remember my Dad saying that was the best hard sauce she had ever made😁😁. I never had any - not sure if it was because of the booze or that the name sounded yucky but now I sure wish I had had some.

We had hard sauce with Christmas pudding. No liquor in it. I thought it was called that bc unless it is warmed to melt the butter, it is "hard" (kind of the texture of frosting).
