No peas in pasties! That is pasty sacrilege!
Beef, potato, onion and swede (rutabaga) only. The beef can be either chopped steak or "mince" and the pastry can be flaky or short crust. Also the crimping must be on the side.
Pasties are serious
business in my family. I'm not even allowed to try the other varieties pasty shops here sell or I'd be disowned.
(At home I eat them on a plate, with a knife and fork, and with ketchup. My husband is dismayed but looks past it. I have the good sense to eat them properly [with your hands, out of the bag] out in public.)
