Mincemeat pie is an English delicacy for Christmas. Here's the recipe for the mincemeat, which really has no meat at all.

DIRECTIONS

Mix all of the ingredients and store in a crock in a cool place or fill into sterilized jars. If the mincemeat is to be used considerably later, omit the apples from the original recipe, and when filling the piecrust add an equal amount of sliced apples.
