MINCE MEAT FOR PIES NO. 1 (1904)

The Blue Grass Cook Book
Compiled by Minnie C. Fox (1904)


MINCE MEAT FOR PIES (No. 1)
R. V. J.

• 4 pounds of fresh tongue,
• 3 pounds of suet,
• 8 pounds of chopped apples,
• 3 pounds of currants,
• 4 pounds of seeded raisins,
• 6 pounds of white sugar,
• 2 pounds of citron, cut in small pieces,
• 4 lemons, grated rind and juice,
• 1 ounce of cinnamon,
• 1/4 ounce of cloves,
• 1/4 ounce of allspice,
• 4 nutmegs, grated,
• 1 quart of Madeira wine,
• 1 pint of cider,
• 1 quart of brandy or good whisky.


Boil the tongue in salted water until tender, and when cold, chop fine.

Remove every particle of membrane from the suet and chop it fine, and mix with the tongue with enough salt to remove the fresh taste.

To this, add the apples, sugar, fruit, spices and other ingredients. Mix all together and cover close.

If too dry when ready for use, moisten with a little sweet cider.
