A friend gave me this recipe for mincemeat many years ago. It is so good that even those who do not care for mincemeat pie likes it. If preferred, use molasses instead of sorghum. Also, apricot juice can be substituted for the pineapple juice. This makes enough filling for 2 (9 inch) pies.

My Father loves mincemeat pie. But he says it's very hard to find the "real" thing. Lots of "slop-in-a-jar" products out there. No good. I made a pie with this filling recipe. He LOVED it. He said this recipe is the true and authentic thing. I am very grateful for it and will use it again!

I made this pie for my father-in-law. I guess I did something wrong, but I followed the directions exactly...the recipe never states to cook the filling or reduce the liquid before baking. My pie had so much liquid in it we were forced to drain it. I drained almost 2 cups of liquid. The flavor I am told is great, but I would suggest reducing the mixture to a thicker consistancy on the stove , then baking.

As a former hater of MinceMeat, this recipe has great flavor and taste.
