Had a good combo lastnight, a slice of mincemeat pie, and a pour of Ezra Brooks 90 proof. The pie had a homemade lard crust and the filling was fresh from a local grocery store. The taste of the two was excellent! The swwet and tangy pie was enhanced by the slight nuttyness of the Bourbon.
Mincemeat is one of my favorite pies (cherry is another) The wife and I are going to try to make some old fashioned mincemeat this year using venison. Anyone got a good recipe?
I keep getting flashbacks to the movie version of "State Fair" where veryone keeps adding more bourbon to the mothers mincemeat and she ends up winnin the plaque at the fair!
