About National Mincemeat Day
Mincemeat is a type of food that is made from minced meat, typically beef or pork. It can also be made from other meats such as lamb or chicken.
Mincemeat is often used in pies and other dishes where it is cooked with fruit and spices to create a sweet and savory flavor.
It was created during the Middle Ages as a way to preserve meat, and other things, by mixing meat, suet and fruit together. Like many foods at the time, the art of preserving was important before the advent of refrigeration.
