Lovely pies, GQ. Do you use meat and suet?

I used to like mince meat pies as a child. But it has been more than 60 years since I have had a slice. I don't see it very much in these here parts.

Is that a hand sewn cloth those pies are sitting on?

I don't think many American's know what wassailing is. My first husband told me and said he was 14 the first time his father took him with him. Very sick the next morning. But I think it is a lovely tradition.

We do have them and they are associated mostly with Christmas. I know of only one woman who makes them from scratch and she uses the meat and suit. I took a small bite of hers and it was not the pie I remember as a child. Perhaps my taste buds have changed over the years.

You can buy them though.

These are sweet though , originally looooooong ago they did actually have meat in them but evolved over the centuries to a sweet filling only .
