Is mincemeat vegan?

Mincemeat is a versatile ingredient that can be used in sweet and savory dishes alike. This mixture typically consists of chopped dried fruit, such as raisins and currants, mixed with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. The addition of suet or vegetable shortening gives it a rich and slightly fatty flavor. Traditionally, mincemeat also included meat, but nowadays it's often made without it. This ingredient is commonly used as a filling for pies, tarts, and cookies during holiday seasons like Christmas. Its complex flavor profile adds depth to any dish, making it a must-have in any pantry.

Mincemeat is a non-vegan food ingredient.
