October 26th National Mincemeat Day

Here’s a day to really be scared of with Halloween rapidly coming. It’s Mincemeat Day, normally served like a pie but as a meal. It was created during the Middle Ages as a way to preserve meat, and other things, by mixing meat, suet and fruit together. It was fairly sweet, sometimes too sweet but it was enjoyed during the Middle Ages maybe because they rarely ate sweets… I don’t know. Like many foods the art of preserving them didn’t make them any better it just made them last longer before they’d kill you because you ate them. But I suppose you can develop a taste for just about anything.

How to celebrate – Make some Mincemeat. Add your favorite fruit to hamburger and see how it tastes. Pretend you are having a Middle Ages festival and serve Mincemeat.
