I'm sure the result will still taste alright. Next time if you aren't going to cook it before canning, you should ask your butcher to grind the mix up for you. That's what we do, and it doesn't cost any extra.
As for the butcher, you may have a better one than I do, but I could have chopped my ingredients better before blending and that action may have spared the blender. ;)
Hmmm... now to figure out what to do with my lamb kidneys and heart... Any suggestions?
You could try chopping up the bacon into small pieces (if you don't have a food processor) with a French chef's knife or similar.
