Iza, The lemon juices acid will actually help in preserving, However without sterilizing your jars and only the lids may be a problem. When filling and closing off the jars you need the heat to form a vacum.If you have aloud an avenue for air to rest in your jar you do stand a risk of comtamination. I would remove the mincemeat,reheat it to 165 degrees for 15 minutes and add it to clean,hot jars with boiled lids and new gaskets

W.DeBord is right on the money.

The boiling after the mincemeat is in the jars will form a air tight seal.

Geez!!!Thats the most important step!!

Sorry Iza
