I am trying to help a friend out with a request for good old-fashioned mincemeat that tastes good. The following are images from my Great-Grandmother Ella Vanderburg’s Grange Cookbook. I need to ask my grandmother and great-aunt if one of them is her recipe. I have fond memories of her feeding me spoonfuls of elk mincemeat in the kitchen, when they were living on the North Fork of the Siuslaw. I was maybe 6? So over thirty years ago, and that taste is still vivid, rich and sweet in my mouth.
