Dried Fruit & Spice Mincemeat

November 18, 2014

Mincemeat is especially nice to have on hand for adding a remarkable depth to fruited pie fillings. I also like to use it as a filling for crepes, and sometimes incorporate several tablespoons into a stuffing for the holiday turkey. Jarred, this mincemeat has a lifespan of about a year in the refrigerator of course. Dried Fruit & Spice Mincemeat makes a nice hostess gift for a friend who likes to cook.
