What it says on the tin really.

Haven't really lived in the UK for years so am out of touch. My colleague is going to Edinburgh next week and in a moment of inspired nostalgia, I asked if she could bring me back some mincemeat so I could (for once!) have mince pies for Christmas.

So, what are your best and recommended jars of mincemeat please?

I suppose anything from Waitrose own brand range is good quality. They also have christmas cake kits that have the ingredients pre measured so all you need are eggs & cake tins.

The specially selected range mincemeat in Aldi is lush (their basic range one is really good for the price too)

I like a cranberry one that Waitrose make.

I have used Aldi's Brandy mincemeat for several years. However, when I bought my usual three jars last Christmas the mixture appeared very sloppy, certainly lacking fruit. I emailed my complaint and Aldi admitted a change of manufacturer. Not for the better.
