Traditional Mincemeat Pie


Tourtière isn’t the only pie associated with the festive season. Mincemeat or mince pies are an English tradition with a history stretching back to the 11th century.

Mincemeat Pie

Mincemeat was originally made with a mixture of meat, dried fruits, and spices, with more meat than fruit, and was developed as a way of preserving meat without salting or smoking. As fruit and spices became more readily available this balance changed gradually into the meatless mincemeat that is familiar today.

But being a butcher’s shop we are keen to return mincemeat pies to their true glory, and are selling traditional mincemeat pies made with our finest ground beef.

    I haven’t had traditional, or what I refer to as ‘real’ mincemeat pie since my grandmother passed away a number of years ago.

    My grandmother’s Mincemeat was filled with meat and fruit and nuts. It was a holiday staple in my family’s Christmas tradition and I think it is still quite common on Nova Scotia’s south shore.

    I have searched year after year for a slice of childhood memory and I’m incredibly excited to learn that you might be able to complete my holidays! Please email me at the address provided with directions to your shop and to confirm you’re nit already sold out 😉
