Can anybody tell me why I would want to buy mincemeat in a glass?

McTavge, maybe that's what they giggled about.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mincemeat
https://www.google.ch/search?q=mince...w=1097&bih=500

No meat (as in flesh of animal) in it at all. And my grandmother used to say one oughtn't to mince any part of it either, but chop it all by hand, slowly. She said that was kinder to the fruit, and it tasted better that way.

I know we hear lots of stories about Swiss supermarket products being past expiry date. But from medieval times?

That was where all the English steamed puddings came from - (usually cooked in an animal stomach) for the commoners before they had ovens (which were small, ineffective, and part of the fireplace).

If you ever drive through Jedburgh, Carters Rest does a great haggis (and even fried haggis crusty meat balls)
