National Mincemeat Day
National Mincemeat Day is a day for mincemeat, a mixture made with minced meats, suet, and fruits, and with spices, and distilled spirits such as brandy. Many modern recipes for mincemeat no longer contain meat, and many times suet—a raw, hard fat—is replaced with vegetable shortening. Recipes for mincemeat date back to medieval times. Mincemeat is most often used in pies, and is popular around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
National Mincemeat Day is observed next on Saturday, October 26th, 2019. It has always been observed annually on October 26th.
