Once again we begin to think of the christmas season soon to be upon us.
Of course for me it is all the preparation and especially all the goodies we enjoy.
Out comes my recipes and as usual the old standbys always come out first.
My Mom, bless her soul, gave me her recipe for mincemeat. She wrote it on the back of a used
envelope. Just the ingredients, No amounts and no directions. I treasure this little piece of
scrap paper because it is written in Mom's handwriting.
My daughter Liz always helps making the mincemeat. It has become a family tradition.
She peels the apples and puts them through the food processor. "Mom, do you think we have
enough apples?" asked Liz. "Oh I think so". We then proceed to put in all the other ingredients
tasting as we go. Perhaps should add a little more of this or that. Eventually it satisfies our
taste buds. Because of my Mom, the finished product is a little different every year. Thanks
Mom for the special memory.
