Directions:
Heat meat in slow oven 250 until warm. Cook apples in large pan; then add cooked raisins, cherries, gooseberries, raspberries, sugar and spices. Mix well. Add 4 cups raw apples (diced) and flour. If not enough sugar and spice, add to your taste.(Can freeze after cool.) Just pour into pie shell. Bake until shell is done. Cool.
(In cooking apples and raisins add just enough water to cook because if you add too much, it will make too much juice. This makes several pies. After mixed may be frozen in quart containers for pies.)

Personal Notes:
After Grandma Stuckey had suffered from the horrible disease, Alzheimer's, my father Jerry really wanted a minced meat pie. He asked all of the sisters if they had a recipe and they hadn't; they had just watched it be made, as that often was how it was done at that time. The sister's came together, for Jerry, for many trial and error sessions. After one said session they finally came up with a mincemeat pie recipe they could all agree upon. Unbeknownst to them, Grandma Stuckey had given my mother Kathy a recipe for her minced meat pie. When I told her what I was doing she eagerly gave me the recipe. The above recipe is Grandma's original minced meat pie recipe she gave to my mother before we moved to Kansas.
