      Bringing with banish is a sore loser millenial entitled hipster claiming to know everything about food. I don't care how skilled you are, I'm a Gen Z and your disgusting unprogressive generation destroyed all trends in the 2010's. I just hope 2020's will not repeat the same mistake your millenial narcissism scarred the world with.

    Originally, mincemeat pie filling had meat in it along with suet. I had it when I was a small child and it was amazing.

    "Till it's the most beautiful thing you've ever seen" Babish says. I glanced over and saw my partner has fallen asleep with his phone still in his hand and thought "No, I definitely don't think that pie is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen." Thought this was cute enough to share haha

    Mincemeat used in pies and puddings use to actually have pork mince and pork fat in it. Hence the meat in the word mincemeat. Heston Blumenthal did a show on the history of Christmas food in which he cooked one of the original recipes for plum pudding which had more meat from an animal then dried fruit. In the middle ages dried fruit was added to a boiled sausage of pork and poultry mince in order to give it sweetness and show off how rich you are. This meal of a boiled sausage which became the boiled pudding to history was eaten a lot during the winter months because it was easy to store and did not go off easily. Alcohol is quite often added as a preservative and when Europeans came back from the Middle East spices were added to cover any taste of the meat going off.

    Minced meat it what you guys call ground beef, and it is called a mince pie because it used to be made with meat in it :)

    You didn't mince the fruit?? It's also called Mince Meat because in Victorian times the fruit used wasn't available as much hence they used mince 'actual' meat pies

    lembas bread could easily be a savoury short bread biscuit. Butter, flour and parmesan cheese makes them really nice too.

    He could have improved the lembas bred by adding those seeds they usually have it in certain diet foods that when you eat them they expand my sucking up meat saliva and fluids cause you need to feel fuller

    FYI, I tried making the apple tart. The recipe he says uses 280 grams of melted butter and that was way too much butter. It ended up as more of a paste. After searching the internet, the recipe to make the tart was closer to 10 tablespoons butter.

    Babish seems to be rather insistent that almonds are very important to agriculture across all of middle earth, or maybe he just likes almonds, but hey, that's just a theory, a comment theory, this joke sucks.

    Lembas makes complete sense as a hardtack-style food, but I always imagined it as something like a giant square shortbread cookie given how amazing it was supposed to taste.

    To confuse you even more, we British have 2 kinds: mincemeat - fruit & nuts mix mildly fermented and minced meat - what the US calls ground meat.

    In Australia minced meat is “ground meat” so a minced meat pie is savoury and usually beef
