Mince Chiffon Pie


ew . . . I'm just saying. Not my thing. But my grandmother made this every year for my dad and he LOVES it. I'm preserving a little piece of holiday tradition here. Go easy on me...

2 envelopes plain jello
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup rum (make right choices)
1 package mincemeat
2 egg whites
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 t. salt
1 cup heavy cream, whipped
1 baked pie shell

Sprinkle jello on water in saucepan to soften. Place over low heat until gel dissolves. Stir in rum (make right choices) and cooked mincemeat. Chill until mixture mounds. Beat in stiffly beaten egg whites and fold in whipped cream. Garnish with whipped cream and sprinkle with nutmeg.
