If you have never had pear mincemeat this is a must have for the holidays. We got our recipe from the Ball Book it called for golden sultanas, dried apricots, currants, and even almonds. I served some of the leftovers from canning over a scoop of icecream and it was absolutely amazing! The aroma from this recipe makes you start thinking of the holidays! This is a special recipe its not really an affordable recipe but one that I am tucking away for the holidays. I can’t wait!
