Now I know that Mincemeat will divide even a very close and loving family. But give me a mincemeat pie any day! And I am happiest when no one else wants any and there are leftovers, especially for breakfast. However, this little jewel will not be served here.....but I do share the introduction as written.
"Unusually sweet for a gelatin salad, this mincemeat ring is very good
with cold sliced ham or turkey."
Mincemeat Salad Ring
not made from:
Sunset Salad Book
1 envelope (1 T) unflavored gealtin
1/4 c cold water
1 package (9oz) dry mincemeat
2 c chilled ginger ale
1/4 c lemon juice
1/3 c chopped nut meats
Sour cream or Whipped cream
grated lemon peel
Sprinkle gelatin into cold water, let stand 5 minutes. Break up mincemeat into saucepan, and add 1 cup of the ginger ale. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; boil 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in the gelatin mixture, lemon juice and nut meats; stir until gelatin is dissolved. Cool. Stir in remaining 1 c ginger ale. Turn into a 1 1/2 quart ring mold, chill at least 2 hours. To serve, unmold and top with sour cream or whipped cream sprinkled with a little grated lemon peel.
