2 Tbsp orange rind
1 tsp salt
1 tsp cloves

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This comes from Grandma Slater's
"American Women's Cookbook" and the page that
this recipe was on was splattered and looked
well-referred to. The original Mincemeat recipe uses beef
and suet, so I thought that the mock mincemeat recipe
would be more appealing to current readers. This recipe
is usually put into a crust-lined pieplate and baked.
It's served with hard sauce.
