Fun Food Holidays™ October 26th is National Mincemeat Day
What is mincemeat, you ask? It's a pie filling consisting of finely minced dried fruits, spices, a spirit like brandy--and sometimes, but not always, a little meat or meat fat. It can be consumed as a savory dinner course or as a dessert.
In North America, the holiday season is mincemeat season. To remind cooks of that, today is National Mincemeat Day!
