When tobacco and textiles ruled the South, mincemeat pie was the crown jewel of holiday celebrations. The boozy, heavily spiced, fruit-and-meat fillings preserved meat without smoking or salting. Meatless “mince” pies made with ingredients like sweet potatoes were popular too. In the 1800s, Mrs. Abby Fisher, of What Mrs. Fisher Knows About Old Southern Cooking fame, stirred a half-gallon each of sherry and brandy into her big-batch recipe. Our green tomato mincemeat calls for less alcohol, but we’ve made up for it with Bourbon-Pecan Ice Cream.
