Pasties

Pasties created by AZPARZYCH

My mum made the best pasties on earth, but she's gone so I had to make them today from my memories. Pasties were a food we ate when we were poor, so there wasn't much meat in them compared to veg. Swede turnip is very important in pasties. Mum made her own pastry with dripping, but I don't save dripping!

    This style of pastie is classic original from wales and very popular in oz. Lighter and much more flavor than those made in up. You dont need a bottle of ketchup to eat one as they are not as dry.

    As a certified Yooper: This is not a Michigan Pastie. Never in my life and many pasties eaten did I ever see peas in one. I've also never had to put beef stock in mine, but YMMV. For the people asking, a 'swede' is the same thing as a rutabaga, but outside of MI I've only heard UK people call it that (there's a good deal of Cornish culture near my hometown, so it's not an uncommon name).
