Unlike what the name implies, these little tarts are not made with meat. They are actually filled with spiced, slightly boozy dried fruit and encased in a tender sweet pastry. An absolutely must-have at Christmas time in the UK! We can get mincemeat in jars in the supermarket but I've provided a recipe for homemade mincemeat in case you can't buy it ready-made. Just be aware that you need to 'mature' the filling in the jar for at least 2 weeks so plan accordingly!
