My wife makes the best mincemeat pie imaginable. You can't buy real mincemeat. She makes it out of deer meat and apples and raisins and currants and spices. Not as much sugar as most use. It's good.

Hiya, Scoundrel!

Yepper, thet is just how my grandmother and mother made it. Sometimes they had to substitute beef for the meat when venison wasn't available.

I can't even find make-believe mincemeat pies in the grocery stores up here anymore.

Also, I jest can't get enough real southern pecan pie either!

Good pecan pie is hard to beat. Most don't have enough pecans. My mother used to go back to Oklahoma to see her people some years and she would bring back a big sack of pecans. She'd make pies 'till they were gone. Haven't had anything like that for about 30 years.

Ahhhh . . . fellas. Got two big fat home made full-of-pecans pies laying on the counter yonder in the kitchen as I write. Got a pecan tree in the front yard. And have Georgia pecans ricked back, as well.

My 81 year old ma-in-law, who lives next door keeps me in 'em.

Pains me to even tell y'uns about it . . .

Bad as I hate to say, I'm sitting a'twixt two pecan pie eaters right now. 'Tis Mrs. Sticks and Number-One-Son-Sticks. You wouldn't believe how chock full of pecans each slice is. Ain't exactly like lissenin' to squirrels gnawin' nuts, but 'tain't far from it. And it's kinda like a couple o' bluegills slurpin' down bugs---in a hurry. Have you ever seen a hawg get into a trough with both front feet? That's how I'm being tempted . . .

Now this Benson cake: what'n'thunder is it?

Uh . . . 'Foxie? - Uh . . . Mrs. Sticks said the best she could do for you right now is send a bag of pecans and a recipe. Heh heh heh...

Now how did I ever miss this conversation?I purely love fruitcake.The missus has a friend that makes 'em.Good ones too....Only problem is her husband is a low down snake of a man,so I'm gonna have to try to get her to offer me one without it sounding like I'm desperate or nothin'.As for Pecan,mincemeat an such like,all I can do is drool at the thought.....My Gramma used to make suet pudding ever year(with hard sauce of course)an since she passed I haven't even seen any that didn't come in a can,from England,of all places.Sure wish girls still learned to cook the good stuff.....

Mincemeat Pie!!!!!!! I love that stuff. I might have to hit your place packin my trade gun just in case you get feisty.

Is it real mincemeat or that apple raisin junk that comes in a jar and sold in the grocery store? That stuff isn't mincemeat.

My Dad used to make mincemeat for Mom using the suet from the dear he got. He always used the crumbly suit found around the heart and kidneys.

Mom could store her mincemeat for years. She always put it in a gallon jar and kept a layer of brandy over the top so it was sealed from the air, even though the jar lid was closed down tight with wax paper. About once a year she would have to add brandy since some had a tendency to absorb into the mincemeat. After a couple of years it took on a real kick. Big Grin

You can have all the pecan pie you want, just put the mincemeat pie on my table.

Load fast and aim slow.

White finger I'm going to have my wife make a mincemeat pie and I'll eat it in your honor. And her mincemeat is the real stuff.

My dearest fellow fruity's
Thank goodness theres at least 3 of us left on this planet..
My mother cooks up the same batch has her mother we talking at least 80 year old recipe.
Darn mom started getting healthly and she cut out the pork back fat in her mix...
She bakes them in oct. and wraps them in a thin dishtowel brandy soaked...
Shes checks and re-applys till X-Mass.
Don't even bother getting on the sacle till the fruit cake is gone.
Boy's your living right!
