Former robotics engineer converted to web developer and opensource contributor--mostly in Python and PHP. I enjoy automating drudgery and augmenting human decision-making with software.

comment Is it OK to marinate chicken and pork together?
Yea, ziplocks are great for maximizing the marinade contact. But I'm a bit of a greenie, not a big fan of "disposable" plastics nor BPA, and tumbling/shaking a hard container every couple hours is almost as good at distributing marinade.

comment Is it OK to marinate chicken and pork together?
Yea, I'd normally agree. But somehow it turned out OK. The pork+lemon juice tastes significantly different than chicken plus lemon juice. Both tasted great despite overcooking (per the accepted answer) and the shared marinade.

@TFD, better safe than sorry seems like the right way to go regardless of location. In Malaysia all pork is imported from western sources (Australia mostly). Muslims don't eat pork. So Sean's advice probably still applies, at least for my circumstances.

@soegaard, thanks for the concern about my location in Malaysia, but I'm still as unglobal as most Americans when it comes to statistics. Interesting how rare Trichinosis is in the States.

No compromise or meta-debate necessary. Zhaph can use whatever terms he thinks will get his question across. The pies sure sound tasty.

If you do so, you're endangering the health of readers that don't have the same jars that you do in your country.

How about calling it "minced dried fruit"? Or "fruit cake mix"? Or "Christmas cake mix"? ... for the international audience. More festive and less ambiguous that way.

Minor grammar improvement. Precautionary elimination of the ambiguous term "mincemeat."
