It's sounding more like our ground beef all the time. Or, our processed pork products like Vienna sausages and Spam.

(We're thinking of changing our "regular" vacation plans and try to visit Spain for a week in summer and then a week in the Caribbean in Jan/Feb. We'll see...)

Kiddies, kiddies! Mince and mincemeat are the same rootin'-tootin' thing. I asked my b/f to get some mincemeat for the spaghetti sauce once, and he couldn't figure out why I wanted to put raisins in with the basil leaves.

"No, mince MEAT! MEAT!"

"Oh, you mean mince."

At least we cleared that up before we ate.

Yeah, we call it hamburger or ground beef. We just don't call it mince since our version has raisins in it. Now I'm clear on mince.

Now I'm terribly confused. We call the hamburger stuff "minced meat" here. Although we also call the stuff with raisins "minced meat". Have to figure it out in context, I guess...

Do you not called ground beef "minced meat", Isa?

Nope. It is called hamburger or ground beef. That's it. Very simple. No confusion. When you buy it in the store, it is always labeled "ground beef".

Mince only describes the stuff for making mincemeat pies, which is sold in jars found in the baking goods section of the stores down here.
