Mince pies!

Hi all,

As the festive season approaches I wondered if anyone knew anywhere in the bay where I might buy mince pies?

If I get any sent from the Motherland (UK) they will be crumbs by the time they arrive!

      June Taylor (a Brit living and making delicious jams and other canned treats in the East Bay) does an exceptionally delicious veg mincemeat every holiday season--it's not cheap--and/but it's ready to pop into a pie shell.

      You'll find it @ the Ferry Bldg Farmer's Market and on the shelves of various local specialty groceries (Bi-Rite, Star Mkt, the Pasta Shop, et. al), as well as on her website: www.junetaylorjams.com

        If you don't want to make your own, closer to the holidays check places like Draegers that carry a lot of English goods because Walkers (shortbread) makes pretty good little mince pies. We've purchased these in the Bay Area.
