Mince pies are traditional English Christmas food. We usually eat these on Christmas Eve, along with our Christmas Cake.
You can buy mincemeat in jars in America but it is often quite hard to find. My kids look forward to their mince pies every Christmas Eve to Boxing Day (December 26th). If I can buy mince pies ready made, since moving to America, I will, as I count it a blessing! However, on the times I am unable to obtain them, I will make my own.
