In earlier times mincemeat was just what the name implies...finely choppped meat, preserved for the winter. After butchering the stock in the fall most of the meat was canned, dries or smoked. Mincemeat was made from the bits and peices left over. Sounds gross..but is really very tasty. You haven't lived til you've tasted "real" mincemeat pie.
