Venison Mincemeat

Aunt Jewel was a reknown woodscook in the Patten, Maine lumber camps back in the 40's. This is her recipe. This mincemeat is very rich but not too sweet. (You may add a 1/2 c. of water to each pint for a juicier pie.) Processed this will keep for 2+ years. This make ten pints or 10 frozen pies.

    Made this a few weeks ago and it is really good! I idn't have suet, so I substituted butter. Also substituted dried cranberries for the currants. Lastly, couldn't find citron so I eliminated that. Added a tsp of minced fresh ginger because I saw it mentioned in a similar recipe and I love the flavor of ginger. I could eat this straight out of the can!
