    Debber's Note:

    Use as mincemeat (without suet!) or serve at breakfast with your favorite scones, English muffins or just toast. Use for a surprise between two slices of baked French toast, spoon over puffy pancakes. Frances Bissell *Preserving Nature's Bounty* gets the credit for developing this recipe.
