Before my grandmother passed away, she and I redid her receipes so I would know what the different measurement meant. I guess I missed the Mincemeat pie because it called for a poodle of apples. Does anyone have any ideal how many apples make a poodle.

I'm guessing about 3#....Because a poodle..will weigh about 5# before De-Boning it!!!!

But please...............don't listen to Toad!!!!!!!!

I have no idea, but then I'm more of a chocolate pie person!

Sorry Linda, the only thing I found that even comes close is a "Pood" which is an old Russian measurement but it's like 36+ pounds! Course now I'm really curious so I'll keep looking!

Maybe she had a ceramic poodle that she used to measure the amount of apples needed?

I haven'y the slightest idea, but I do remember my granny making mincemeat pies'

Dec 1 @ 8:48PM

Yanno..on second Thought... I may have been a little off on my calculations...
Yeah... I really messed up!! I Forgot to Field dress...and Skin.... so that's at least..1-1/2#.....dumb ass me!!!

I've never heard that term used either...My Grandma used to put a small amount of apple in her mincemeat pies...a very small, tiny , diced up amount.

Wow, I hadn't thought about that in years....they were yummy... I've never liked any other mincemeat pies but hers. And I don't have her recipe............

Sorry I can't be of any help...good luck.

This blog made me laugh...not at you, but just in general! Yeah...I got to laugh out loud!...anywhoo...a poodle is usually thought of as a tea it is about a half of a cup....or a bit more depending on your taste. Don't sweat it. Your grandmother loved you and shared...she just didn't explain the poodle thingy...I am grining from ear to ear...somedays tyhe sorrow doesn't out weigh the laughter...and I am loving you and your grandma! Hugs to you...and great pie making is in order!
