What is it?

Dating back to the Middle Ages as a way to preserve small amounts of meat, mincemeat still remains on supermarket shelves, although it is far less common. It is a mixture of dried fruit, nuts, citrus peel, distilled spirits, spices, brown sugar and, yes, some sort of meat or suet. Vegetable suet is now occasionally used in some recipes. It is available in the baking section at the market.
