Source: Festive Favourites, TransAlta Utilities Shared by Elizabeth Rodier, March 1993 From Blue Ribbon Cook Book, Winnipeg Manitoba 1905 - Mince Pie Hints Dried apples soaked in water a few hours make a very fair substitute for fresh apples in mince pies. Dried cherries and other fruit prepared with sugar can be soaked 10-12 hours in a very little water and then both water and fruit used instead of raisins. They will be much cheaper and will answer very well. Economical housewives will often find hints like these very serviceable. From: ELIZABETH RODIER Refer#: NONE Conf: (1010) F-COOKING
