Well, I think we'll need an explanation of what "pork cake" is. I'm debating about whether it is akin to meat loaf or maybe mince meat. Hmmm...
Pork cake was my Great-Grandmother Dickson's fruitcake recipe. Ina and Bertha seemed to think it was special. I tried it once and posted on it. If only I knew how to link . . .
Linking is easy! Just find the post and right click and copy its web address. Then back where you are typing your current post, highlight a word, like cake, and click on the word Link on the toolbar right above where you're typing. There'll be a spot where you can paste the web addy you copied and that should do it!
Thanks, Chris. There must be something about that process I don't understand, but I'll keep working on it after I finish the Dr. Pepper Salad and the Mystery Pecan Pie.
I remember my grandmother making mince meat pie in the 1940's with real meat...beef. Don't think that's done very much today, with meat, I mean. I think families love to make their own special recipes from year to year. My mother always made waldorf salad for holiday meals. And the recipe at our house had black walnuts. Black Walnuts are very common in Missouri. They have a strong unique taste and I consider them the "tough guys" in the nut world. English walnuts on the other hand are wimpy.Chris, next time you visit Kathy in person, give her a face to face lesson about links. Nothing beats personal tutoring.HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE.
Hey . . . I got it fixed. Actually it's pretty cool the way that link thing works.
Yay!! Well done! :-)
Hurrah for Kathy.
I had mince pie made with meat only once that I recall -- at a church dinner in the '50s. I love fruit-based mincemeat. And when it happens that we have a lot of green tomatoes at the end of the growing season, I make green tomato mincemeat. My favorite mince pie calls for a cream cheese topping. Another recipe tops the pie with pears.
Wow, what a range of mince meat recipes, Kathy. My grandmother's mince meat pies (with meat) had a fruit mixture just like in the jars you see at the store. I remember raisins & apples in it.
