Mincemeat

"Mrs. Weasley had sent Harry a scarlet jumper with the Gryffindor lion knitted on the front, also a dozen home-baked mince pies, some Christmas cake, and a box of nut brittle."
—Description.[src]

Mince pie is a British festive sweet pastry, traditionally consumed during the Christmas and New Year period.

HistoryEdit

Molly Weasley gave Harry Potter a dozen home-baked mince pies for Christmas in 1993.[1] She also sent him what was described as being a "large quantity" of these as part of her Christmas gift in 1994.[2] Mince pie was served during the Slug Club Christmas party in 1996; at one point during the party, Horace Slughorn was holding a glass of mead in one hand and an enormous mince pie in the other.[3]

FillingEdit

Mince pies are so called because they are filled with a spiced fruit mixture called "mincemeat", the latter itself being so-called because it traditionally included minced or shredded meat as well as the fruit. The mix nowadays consists of raisins/sultanas and similar spices to those used in Christmas puddings or cakes, often with candied orange peel as well, and in the case of luxury versions sometimes nuts or brandy.
