An old English recipe for the still popular Raised Pork Pie. Eaten cold, served in a small wedge, with a nice green salad and some pickles, it's delicious, and worth the effort.

I remember having "individual" pork pies a a kid (now 60)in Rhode Island. My parents, both from England, originally made but then eventually bought them all the time. I have been searching recently for some of the things I enjoyed back then. The taste of this pie brought back all the memories of eating this great treat with my parents. Thanks.
