Who came up with the name of mincemeat for the filling of mince pies?
I could imagine some baker came up with the dried fruit/spice filling for a pie and then realised how similar it looked to the filling of a, say, shepherd's pie and said, let's call it mincemeat to confuse all the foreigners?

Update: Wow, that was quick. Thanks a lot!
