Your favorite mincemeat uses - sweet or savory?

I have two jars (27 oz.) Of Nonesuch Mincemeat, and don't know what I want to do with each of them.
Last winter, I made a delicious chicken dish with mincemeat, and that's a possibility ..but I wonder what my fellow Chowhounders suggest.
There are plenty of recipes online, but what do you like best?
The topic re: "Mincemeat" caught my eye, just because it was one of my late mother's favorites. One recipe for Mincemeat Pie that I googled (but have not tried) reminded me that for some folks, "Christmas would not be Christmas without Mincemeat Pie." So you can get in on that apparent British tradition shortly.
A lot of years ago, I was an American kid backpacking through Wales, a couple of weeks before Christmas. At one of the bed and breakfasts where I stayed, the sweet little old lady who owned it called me into the kitchen, where she had just baked a pan of them. She said that for every mince tart I ate at Christmas, I would have a month without tears in the new year. I think I came close to insuring a tear-free year during my stay there. Eating them still makes me think of that.
