Category: Pies

 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Apple cider
  • 1 c Raisins
  • 1/2 c Dried currants
  • 1 1/2 c Apples; peeled and chopped
  • 1/4 lb Ground caribou meat
  • 1 ts Ground cinnamon
  • 1 ts Ground cloves
  • 1 ts Ground ginger
  • 1/2 ts Ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 ts Ground allspice
  • 1/4 c Brandy or dark rum
  • 1 Pastry recipe


In a heavy 2-quart saucepan, combine cider, raisins, and currants. Cover
heat to boiling over high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer 30 minutes,
stirring occasionally. Add apples, caribou, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, salt,
nutmeg, and allspice. Simmer 2 hours longer. Add water as necessary to keep
mincemeat from sticking to saucepan. Cool mincemeat to room temperature,
the liquor and let sit at least overnight before making pies.

Mincemeat can be kept in a cool place in a stone crock for 2 weeks, canned
frozen. If frozen, thaw mincemeat before making pie.

Prepare pastry and refrigerate until ready to use-at least 30 minutes.
Heat oven
to 350'F. Divide pastry; roll out bottom crust and roll out and cut strips
a top lattice. Carefully spoon mincemeat into crust-lined pie plate. Place
pastry strips one at a time across mincemeat to create a woven grid. Lift
of bottom crust over ends of strips. Pinch together and flute edge. Bake
pie 50
to 55 minutes or until crust is lightly browned and filling bubbles. Cool
minutes on wire rack before cutting.
