National Mincemeat Day is observed annually on October 26. A mixture of spiced meat and fruit, this English recipe dates back to the 15th century.
Originally, mincemeat was developed as a way of preserving meat without salting or smoking. The filling was then used to make mince pies, which were considered a unique part of holiday dinners as they are still to some today. Many modern recipes contain only fruit, sometimes with liquor as an added ingredient.
You may have heard stories about mincemeat pie from your grandparents, aunts, and uncles or possibly read about it in a book. However, if you have never had the opportunity to try one, National Mincemeat Day would be the day to do so.
