Every year, Christmas inevitably falls on December 25th. But for Helen Meredith and her cousin David Mendel, British tradition requires that certain dishes be prepared several weeks ahead of time. Making mincemeat—a savoury mix of fruits, nuts, spices and alcohol—is a family affair that involves several rituals. Friends and family members finely chop each of the ingredients that go into the mincemeat. Later, they’ll all enjoy delicious mincemeat pies together!
