English Mincemeat Pie Recipe Is Just Made for the Holidays by 30Seconds Food
In England, mincemeat pie is a staple during the holiday season. The word mincemeat may make you wonder what's in this delicious pie! The answer is that mincemeat today is typically a mixture of chopped dried fruit, nuts and alcohol, usually brandy or rum. But yes, older mincemeat pie recipes did contain beef suet, beef or even venison.
The mincemeat pie has medieval English origins and is traditionally served during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holiday season. Here's what you need in order to serve this special low-sodium pie during the holidays this year: mincemeat pie filling, apple, dried figs or apricots, walnuts, brown sugar, rum or brandy, lemon juice and a pie crust.
