  - Mince Pie Hints Dried apples soaked in water a few hours make a very fair
 substitute for fresh apples in mince pies.  Dried cherries and other fruit
 prepared with sugar can be soaked 10-12 hours in a very little water and
 then both water and fruit used instead of raisins.  They will be much
 cheaper and will answer very well.  Economical housewives will often find
 hints like these very serviceable.
