Nonesuch Mincemeat Pie

When Kim, my daughter-in-law asked me if I would make her grandpa a mincemeat pie I immediately said “Yes!” Personally I love mincemeat, always have. So when grandpa asked for a mincemeat pie, I was more than happy to make one for him, minus the one slice I saved for myself. Nonesuch Mincemeat Pie is super easy to make using Nonesuch Mincemeat pie filling.


What the heck is Mincemeat?

Mincemeat is a combination of apples, raisins and citrus peel. Blended with sugar and spices to make a delicious cooking and baking filling. Mincemeat is derived from old English recipes and today remains one of the most popular holiday foods in England.

In the late 1600’s

In the late 1600’s, mincemeat was served as a meat pie flavored with fruit and spices. Over time, with more fruits and spices were added and less meat the pie ingredients changed and began being served as desserts, especially when mincemeat was brought to Colonial America.

Ready to Use

Ready to use mincemeat, first offered in wooden buckets and crates, is one of the oldest American convenience foods. Mincemeat has been steadily manufactured in the US for more than 100 years.
Even early American cooks did not want to spend the time and effort required to make mincemeat at home.

Condensed Mincemeat

Condensed mincemeat was first developed in 1878,
with the discovery that proper drying of mincemeat
resulted in a product that could be used year round.
The Merrell-Soule Company, manufacturer and distributor of canned goods, successfully introduced condensed mincemeat under the None-such Brand name for Borden. Merrell-Soule company was purchased by Borden in the late 1920’s.

    • Mary,
      Since Mincemeat tends to be on the moist side, I think 2 days would be fine. Anything longer and you might end up with a soggy crust. Cool the pie completely on a wire rack before storing the pie. Cover the pie with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator. You can also go to: Thanks for stopping! Happy Holidays to you and yours.

  • I had to go to four stores to find Nonesuch Mincemeat in a jar…..started looking at Thanksgiving and didn’t find any ’til last week, just in time for Christmas. I guess mincemeat pie isn’t so popular in Northwest Arkansas. This was the only jar on the shelf. I’ve just made the pie and there’s not enough filling in the jar for my 9-inch pie. BUMMER! It’s Christmas morning! Why not make larger jars so that there will be enough mincemeat for my pie?

    • Hello Carole, I really feel bad for you. I only know too well how frustrating it is when you want to make a recipe and #1 you can’t find the main ingredient and #2 it doesn’t turn out. Here in Wisconsin it can be found during the holidays and at some supermarkets throughout the year. I wish you would have contacted me earlier, I could have sent you some. You can also purchase Nonesuch Mincemeat on Amazon but I’m aware that’s not always a possibility either. Normally for a 9-inch pie, 1 1/2 jars of mincemeat would have been plenty. I’ve had this same thing happen to me once and I ended up adding apple pie filling to make the pie ‘full’ enough. I hope the rest of your holiday went well?!? Lynn

  • I'm sure grandpa loved his mincemeat pie. Thank you for the info on mincemeat. All I really knew was tha t it is a pie. Thank you, also for linking. Merry Christmas to you and your family, Lynn. I'm glad to have gotten to know you!
