Personal Notes:
Mincemeat was my Dad's favorite pie. I however, found the jarred mincemeats to be totally lacking in flavor. After much experimenting, this is my favorite. You can alter the flavors or add chopped pecans or walnuts, but I think you'll find it to be incredibly delicious. Tyr substituting chopped dates for the raisins. WOW!
