Big tubs of Sainsburys own mincemeat 10p

kevanf1kevanf1

Just been into the Cannock Sainsbury store and found big (around 2lb in weight) tubs of mincemeat for 10p each. The use by date November 2013 so worthwhile stocking up for this year and next. Use it in mincepies then freeze them for next year. To be honest the mincemeat should be ok anyway after the use by if it's kept cool.

I have put that this is local but it may be in other stores too.

    i read about this last year they selling them cheap its dog meat cat meat and rat meat lol hence why its 10p they need to sell the old meat first so they can kill most dogs cats and rats as we have so many in uk,heat added the most you buy the more they can kill.

    Mincemeat is a mixture of chopped dried fruit, distilled spirits and spices, and sometimes beef suet, beef, or venison. Originally, mincemeat always contained meat.[1] Many modern recipes contain beef suet, though vegetable shortening is sometimes used in its place. Variants of mincemeat are found in Australia, Brittany, Canada, northern Europe, Ireland, South Africa, the UK and the United States. In some countries the term mincemeat refers to minced or ground meat.

    Sometimes Minced Beef (like what you might make say a Cottage Pie from) is called Mince Meat, I think Lonewarrier is getting confused, that said the title didnt make it 100% clear which type of "Mincemeat" it was referring to, only the description refering to mince pies.

    Mince meat is fruit stabilized in a sugar syrup , some old or "traditional" varieties do contain animal fat but that isnt the norm now , its place has been taken by vegetable suet.
    Minced meat of course is completely different.

    I would be very surprised if anybody here in the UK mistook mincemeat for minced meat. But, just to clarify, this is for Sainsbury's own large tubs of 'sweet' mince meat. The stuff that goes into mince pies usually at Christmas or chelsea slices at pretty much any time of the year.

    It is not minced beef, pork, lamb, chicken, turkey, venison, cat, dog or whatever other meat you wish to name :) I also don't know if this is nationwide but other posters may be able to help out here.

    Annoyingly, just before Christmas, our local Asda had run out of mincemeat :( I adore mincepies as long as they are the ones made by my wife :)
