It is called Canadian style mincemeat. I don't know if it actually the way they eat mincemeat in Canada or if they get the brown goo in a jar like we have in the US. Perhaps someone just called it that for fun and it has nothing to do with Canada. I don't know. If any friends from Canada can solve this mystery for me, I would be so grateful.
Well, whatever it is called and where ever it hales from, it looked good and I decided to try it.
It is apple cider, cranberries, craisins, apples, raisins, and spices. It all gets dumped together into a pot, cooked, mashed and then stored in jars.
|Simmering in the pot. It smelled as wonderful as it looks. Apples, cranberries and cinnamon. |
That's an amazing fall aroma.
|Canned into jars. It looks pretty.|
