Mincemeat pie seems to have fallen out of favor, but in 1978 it was still very much on people’s minds (and tables). Here, from the December issue of Gourmet, was the editors’ suggestion for the perfect holiday pie.
The suggested accompaniment? Ginger ice cream. Even though it uses preserved ginger (fresh ginger was not a supermarket staple in the seventies) it still seems rather food-forward for the time.
And here, just because it’s almost impossible to imagine a modern epicurean magazine putting this on the newsstand, is the cover of the issue. (The image, incidentally, is from the Rottenbuch parish church in Germany.)
