What is the MATTER with people!!??

What are they abandoning mincemeat pie for?
Southerners insisting pecan pie’s to die for!
Westerners with deranged ideas of eatin’
Blueberry bibbers, and chocolate cream cretins!

Another thanksgiving and I am un-minced!

I see all the pies -apple, pumpkin, and berry,
I drink cider and wine, served to make me feel merry,
but I study the menu, and once again wince,
where o where is my much maligned mince??

‘No person of breeding dislikes mincemeat pie!’
I say with a hot stubborn tear in my eye,

and ‘Mince is for princes!’ I haughtily assert,
but alas, this year too, it won’t be dessert

@jjorge,
saad, sad. Mincemeat seems to be a generational thing. Our kids hated it till they grew up, now its a comfort dessert (especially warmed and served wif vanilla Ice cream.

@farmerman,
I'm going to try making my own -as soon as I can find some of the (store bought) filling.

@jjorge,
well, so as not to lose the poesy of your homage to a good mincemeat pie, Weve always used the BOX packages of NONESUCH Mincemeat. The jarred stuff makes a very sloppy pie. My wife will take 2 boxes and add another package of citron and strips of home pickled tangerine. and one or two others that even involve other fruits

I hears me this cry
about mincemeat pie
It seems such a crime
that pie so sublime
is now hard to find
'tis truly unkind.

Is that an ironic name? Or is it genuinely moosemeat? If so? Gamey? Chewey? Gristly and fatty?

@tsarstepan,
moosemeat tastes like a more flavorful cut of wombat
