Mincemeat here in Canada usually contains raisins, currants, citrus rind, and spices . . .
Hold up, hold up - it has RAISINS in it? Ugh, baked or cooked raisins are not my thing. Wait, what? I don't like mincemeat? I won't even MAKE mincemeat? That's right folks, any baked good that contains mushy raisins or banana, or heaven help me, BOTH - is just not right.
But there are certain members of my household that just can't live without mincemeat tarts. And my Dad, well he loves mincemeat PIE. That's just mincemeat on a large scale. So it wouldn't be the holidays without mincemeat . . . Here's mincemeat tarts, the Red Velvet Momma way.
