I am 69 years old and this is my grandmothers recipe.
4# ground meat ( I use deermeat)
2# brown sugar
1 c molasses
4 c cider vinegar
1/4 # citron
cinnamon,ground cloves, allspice and salt.
Grind all ingredients together. Add spices and salt to taste. Cook slowly. Can be sealed in hot jars or frozen. I freeze mine in quart baggies.
1lb. mince meat, brown in pot. Strain off any juices.
Add 1 onion (I leave mine whole because my husband does not like cooked onion), some chopped carrots, pepper, 1tbs. Dried Parsley 1tbs Dried Chives, 1 flat tsp. dried oregano, 2 Beef cubes, 2 Tbs. tomato puree, Add water to the pot, this you have to gauge yourself, bring to boil and simmer for 1 hour. Take out onion if you don't like cooked onion. If it needs thickening, I use oxtail packet soup, about 2 tsp. We enjoy this dinner served with mashed potato.
Living on an island in the Mediterranean(which was under brutish rule for over 200 years), it took me a long time to decipher U.S. equivalent words for British - for example, "canning" means "preserving" in British terms. I have finally worked out that "hamburger" in U.S. recipes, means ordinary mincemeat in "my" language. Hope this helps.
