This is a meatless mincemeat that is a little sweeter than the old fashioned variety with meat. This recipe makes 1 pie and the "curing" for the mincemeat is not included in the prep time. I made this mincemeat for a pie and it has a wonderful mincemeat flavor although I found it to be a little dry. Next time I will add the the juice from one orange to this or some apple juice.
