Larry Chiaroni’s Mock Mincemeat Pie Recipe

By Larry Chiaroni

I love Mincemeat Pie, but not the beef suet that recipes call for…so I make a no meat Mock Mincemeat Pie.

This is a recipe I got from my sister year’s ago. It makes a lot of pie filling, so you can either freeze the extra filling, in pie size servings, in freezer bags or can it (processing in boiling water for 25 minutes in sterilized pint jars.)

Mock Mincemeat Pie Filling:

7 lbs. ripe Bartlett pears
1 lemon
2 lbs. raisins
6 3/4 cups sugar
1 tb ground cloves
1 tb cinnamon
1 tb nutmeg
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp ginger
1 cup vinegar

Core and quarter the pears and lemon…removing the seeds from the lemon.
Dice the pears and lemon and place in a large pot along with the remaining ingredients .
Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 40 minutes.

The filling is then ready for your pies or tarts…

Buon appetite!!!
