    Annacia's Note:

    I have just found this and I've not tried it. I want to next holiday season though so I'm posting it to keep it safe. I'm thinking that the fine grating disc of the food processor *might* do the trick as I don't have a food grinder. Tprep time is a guess. The 20 mins cook time is for canning if you choose not to freeze it. While this says "No Added Sugar" it contains tons of natural sugar in the fruit.

      I figured I'd have to come back in 10 days or so to do this review, but not so ~ I've made enough mincemeat enough times to tell you right now that this particular recipe makes SOME OF THE BEST TASTING MINCEMEAT I'VE EVER TASTED! I look forward to using it in several pies before the end of the month! Thanks for sharing a great recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
