Mince Filling

3 pts. chopped tart apples 3 cups (1 lb.) seeded raisins, chopped 1/2 cup lemon juice

1 cup strong cereal coffee 1 1/2 cup nice-flavored dark molasses 1-2 teaspns. salt

2 teaspns. ground coriander seed

Grind raisins through medium cutter, then the apples which have been pared, quartered and cored; mix all the ingredients and heat to boiling; put into jars and seal, or keep in cool place in stone jar. Add a little water if necessary when making pies and do not fill crusts too nearly full. Make a lattice-work top of strips of pastry sometimes, instead of a top crust. Serve warm as a rule. Follow this recipe exactly.

We may use a little browned flour and water instead of the cereal coffee.
