In U.K. the term "mince" refers to something cut up in very tiny pieces (minced). For example, beef mince is the U.K. term for ground beef.
Mincemeat can be purchased in jars and is used as a pie filling. It can be found in most well-stocked grocery stores. Of course you can also find it online at Amazon.com: Mincemeat.
