Mincemeat pan filled with mincemeat ingredients. On the top, a wooden spoon.

Year after year, Helen Meredith devotes a great deal of effort to making mincemeat that is as authentic as possible. Some of the ingredients are difficult to find. In fact, she travels all the way to Ottawa for Northern Spy apples. She also uses the same pan her British grandmother used to make preserves.
