HOMEMADE MINCEMEAT

This is another recipe from the old Marshall Township PTA cookbook pictured on this blog.  This recipe is also from Mrs. Burnece McDonald whose biscuits have been featured here.

1 1/2 gallons chopped apples
1 can crushed pineapple
1 pt. orange juice
1 lb. white sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 tbsp nutmeg
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 qt. or 2 cans cherries
2 lbs. raisins
1 lb. brown sugar
1 qt. cider vinegar or (suit to taste)
1 lb. margarine
1 tbsp. cloves

Cook slowly, stirring often until apples are tender, seal in hot steril jars.  Makes about seven quarts.

Note: I have not made this recipe nor do I plan to.  It is posted here exactly as it is in the cookbook, including misspelled words.  If you have questions regarding this recipe, I can't answer them.  However you are free to post them in hopes one of our readers might know the answer.
