Mincemeat Pie Filling


"A friend gave me this recipe for mincemeat many years ago. It is so good that even those who do not care for mincemeat pie likes it. If preferred, use molasses instead of sorghum. Also, apricot juice can be substituted for the pineapple juice. This makes enough filling for 2 (9 inch) pies."

The taste was great, but there was so much liquid I had to take pieces out with a spoon.

I hate all those recipes that claim to be genuine mincemeat yet don't even have any real meat in them, which is the key ingredient. Thanks so much for this wonderful tradition recipe, so much be...
