    Default rec: Grandmother' Scotch [sic] Pudding

    aka mincemeat oatmeal!!! For those of you who didn't welcome the
    thought of peppermint sandwiches for a holiday breakfast, we now
    have a possible alternative!

    BTW, I only put in that "formatted by" blurb in case I screw some
    thing up!

    Grandmother's Scotch Pudding
    Source: 10 ways to serve Grandmother's Mince Meat Goodies.
    Natick, Mass.: The Whipple Co., nd.
    Formatted etc. by Jean B.

    1 9-oz pkg condensed mincemeat
    3 c water
    1 1/2 c rolled oats

    Break the mincemeat into small pieces and cover with the water.
    Let it stand overnight if time permits--if not, cook slowly for 15
    minutes.

    Add the rolled oats and cook for 30 minutes. It is safer to use a
    double-boiler.

    Serve hot or cold with heavy cream or Marshmallow Sauce.

    Comments: This sounds rather potent. I'd like to try a very
    scaled down batch, maybe with steel-cut oats. I'd probably also
    tone the mincemeat down a bit--or a lot!

    Other recipes in this booklet are: Grandmother's Cookies,
    Grandmother's Cake, Grandmother's Filled Cookies, Grandmother's
    Fried Pies, Grandmother's Relish (this sounds VERY iffy!),
    Grandmother's Short Cookies, Grandmother's Plum Pudding (which can
    be baked in popover cups!), and Grandmother's Spiced Cake.

    I'll try to keep this booklet within sight for a day or two in
    case any of you want one of these recipes.

    Actually, I would probably like this a lot, since I love both mincemeat and
    oatmeal. Grandmother's Filled Cookies, Fried Pies, Relish, and Spiced Cake
    sound good too. I love old-fashioned recipes, but then you already knew
    that. :-)

    Cookies? Fried Pies? Maybe a different take on Short Cookies?
    Oh, yes! Please!

    Which one do you want typed up first?

    I am thinking I will split a package of mincement and try the
    oatmeal--maybe more than one iteration--and those "plum puddings".
    The relish sounds awful, but if you insist... :-)

    I used to know this. Let me go look at my package of Nonesuch....
    BTW, it is, miraculously, 9 ounces!!!! Well, to reconstitute
    the dried you add 3 cups of water and boil for 1 minutes. To
    complicate things, while that is the ratio for pie, the package
    also says as a sub for ready-to-use mincemeat, you use 3/4 c
    water, and the yield will be 1 1/2 cups of mincemeat. Maybe you
    can work backward from there? Of course, for recipes that don't
    require water or other liquid, you are probably out of luck!

    This explains it better than I could:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mincemeat


    The product often comes in a jar. In my area, I see it around
    Thanksgiving and Xmas time along with seasonal food items in the
    supermarket.


    Here are pictures of one brand of the jarred product:

    I haven't done it in ages, but it's not hard to make your own.

    And here's a picture of a different brand:
    http://www.crosseandblackwell.com/pr...d=45&catid=251


    Years ago I had mincemeat pie at a party. It's not the sort of thing
    you give an exact recipe for. It had in it:


    Peeled apples cut into cubes
    Peeled pears cut into cubes
    Raisins
    Dried apricots
    Walnuts or pecans.


    It might also have had:
    cranberries
    Other dried fruit such as prunes or peaches.


    Everything had been heated and moistened with a little orange juice, I
    think (maybe brandy?), then thickened with corn starch as for a compote,
    then poured into a home made pie crust, given a lattice crust, and baked.


    As I'm remembering this, I'm thinking that it must go on the menu for
    this Thanksgiving. It was excellent. The only thing that might use a
    little tinkering is making sure the moisture content is right. You
    wouldn't want the dried fruits to be too dry and chewy, and you wouldn't
    want the fresh fruits to give off so much moisture that the finished pie
    is soggy.
