Mincemeat -  a festive delight

Friday December 3, 2010

True to its moniker, Mincemeat did originally contain meat which was partnered with fruit – a combination favoured through the 15th, 16th and 17th centuries.

Early recipes featured wines and even vinegar, although this was later replaced by the brandy that still features today.

Spices were also added to the mix later on when they became more widespread and popular with increased trade and seafaring.
