Re: “The Real American Pie

A group of friends joined me this last Sunday to make mincemeat; a batch of bear mincemeat using The Kentucky Housewife 1836 recipe, one of venison using the 1955 recipe from a manual on butchering, and the Mary Randolph recipe for mincemeat from pigs feet from The Virginia House-wife 1826. Most of us came from the "I hate mincemeat' school and were converted by the lovely results when we filled and baked tiny mincemeat tarts made in crusts of pastry made of home rendered lard from our home grown pigs.
