A great price - may thanks for finding it. To make it an even better bargain, dice up an apple (cooking or Granny Smith) and add about half by weight to the mincemeat - Robertson makes annoyingly sweet mincemeat (IIRC, sugar is the biggest single ingredient) and adding the apple fixes that, plus makes the result appear more home made and gives it more variation in texture and a bit of crunch...

Thanks Grrrrrrrrrrrr, Yes you are correct sugar is the biggest ingredient on the jar, I will give the diced apple addition a try this weekend when I make up a batch of treats.

Yum! Ill be getting some to bake with my little man - his first mince pies

i got it for 10p at tesco! large half a kilo jars are same price there as 250g.

Glucose-Fructose Syrup = cold.

Food police - FREEZE!!!! Neee Nahhhh!!! Ello, ello, look at those traditional ingredients, just-a like-a mamma makes!
