"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
When using wet (jarred) mincemeat, a 29oz jar makes 2 2/3 cups, therefore it is easier to double all the ingredients and make a double batch.
Also I like to double it and store tubes of ready made dough in wax paper in the fridge or freezer for later use. I like to use half and half, butter and Crisco, but it tastes great either way.
Mincemeat is quite expensive so I look for if after the Christmas holidays in the clearance baskets.
