    Love mincemeat although today the meat is gone and just the fruit remains. Every year before Christmas I would help mum make jars of mincemeat to be made into large pies or tarts throughout the year. The amount of spirits added preserves the fruit while also adding flavour. This was in NZ.

    This is older but thought I’d answer something - back in the day they’d store a mix of the minced meat and fruit/spices in a root cellar for 8 weeks to 6 months and due to the cold temps and the alcohol fermented from the fruit, plus the spices added, the mixture would actually keep and you could use it later for pie. Nowadays that wouldn’t be considered safe to eat though, and it probably wasn’t totally safe to eat back then either lmao, plus probably didn’t taste amazing.

    They would have cooked or somehow preserved the meat, not just used it and stored it raw. And the raisins would give a higher sugar content than fresh fruit would, so it would keep better, maybe?

    Meat & fruit? Some empanadas and chile rellenos have that combination. No sugar of course but the sweetness of the raisins give that extra twist. Similar mix of spices. Interesting....

    The flavour combination feels like a winter dish. In germany, many of the oriental and indian spices are used in christmas pastries. Raisins, currants and nutmeg with meat fits pretty neatly into that niche. I'd imagine some aniseed in it as well. If you ever hear a german at an indian restaurant go "smells like christmas"... That's why 😄😉

    MEAT Beginning in Old English, meat meant solid food (as opposed to drink) or fodder for animals. In A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland (1775), Samuel Johnson noted, “Our guides told us, that the horses could not travel all day without rest or meat.” Generally, the word’s meaning has narrowed to refer only to the flesh of mammals, and in some regions, only pork or beef, but some Scottish dialects retain the older meaning of any kind of food

    I wonder if they would have known that to place something in a jar would automatically mean to cover with brine or some some sort of alcohol. Fruit type deserts traditionally do soak them in wine or rum etc.

    Have you seen victorian farm? They make chutney and store it in a jar covered in a pigs bladder. It keeps fine. My grandmother does something similar with modern canning jars. Also using real raisins makes a difference. Its so hard to interpret these old texts without all the information of the time. Keep it up. Its Its interesting to see these from the eyes of a modern cook.

    My first thought after the 4 month preservation and seeing it was under fruit pies was could it possibly mean the meat from nuts? Here often times the flesh of walnuts and such is referred to as meat. 🤔 200 years ago the common methods for preserving was salt, smoking, or even in some cases a primitive version of canning using butter. Just a thought. 🤷‍♀️
