November 26th is National Mincemeat Pie Day

What might you ask is the origin of National Mincemeat Day? To be honest, we don’t know. Our research did not find the creator, although we discovered lots of reference to this day on Ecard sites and calendar sites. But, we found no factual information about it.

And although we did not find any documentation confirming this to be a “National” day, we decided to run with it!

  • Here’s what you need to know about Mincemeat Pie:
  • Mincemeat was originally a medieval (England) sweet, spicy mixture of chopped (minced) lean meat (usually beef, or beef tongue), suet and fruit.
  • It was generally served as an entree.
  • Gradually the meat content was reduced, and today the mixture contains nuts, dried fruit (raisins, apples, pears, citrus peel, etc.), beef suet, spices, and brandy or rum, but no beef.
  • Mincemeat is used primarily in pies and tarts.
  • Mince pies date back to medieval times and possibly long before. They are descended from a huge pie baked on Christmas Eve containing chopped beef, suet, nuts, spices and fruit of which whole dried plums were an important constituent.

For those of us that have had it before, we can revel in the great taste. For those of us who have never heard of Mincemeat, don’t you think today would be a good time to get introduced to it!?
