Traditional Mincemeat PieAndré Baranowski

This recipe for old-fashioned mincemeat pie, a version of one featured in the classic 1861 volume Mrs. Beeton's Book of Household Management, was updated in Jane Grigson's English Food (Macmillan, 1974). The mincemeat filling should be prepared at least two days and preferably two weeks prior to the making of the pies so that the fruit can soften and the flavors can meld.
