Mince Pies are a common enough element of most, if not all, British holiday celebrations. Filled with finely chopped or whole small fruits like apples and raisins, they're spiced with cinnamon, clove and nutmeg, giving them a uniquely "holiday" flavor.
The ingredients for Mince Pie have been traced back as far as the 13th century, as those who had traveled to the Middle East brought back with them new recipes containing different ways to use meats, fruits and spices.
Want to bring a little international flair to your holiday tables this year? Mince Pies are a great way to introduce fun new flavors - and maybe even new traditions - to family and friends.
