Mince pies have occupied a prominent place on Britain’s holiday table for centuries and that tradition continues today. During the near 7 years that I lived in England I witnessed the mince pies being stocked in every store and served in nearly every home as soon as the Christmas season started.
Most people have either a love or hate relationship with mince pies. For some, Christmas just isn’t the same without them while for others the mince pie is the brunt of endless jokes. For my part, if my opinion were limited to store-bought mince pies I would pass in a heartbeat with a courteous “no thank you.”
