But, remember ...... if they have carrots in they are NOT Cornish .... they might be Pasyies but they are NOT Cornish.
When we were in UK last time, my mother, who spent many years of her childhood in Cornwall, bought some so-called Cornish Pasties. She was upset enough to tell the maker that they should not have carrots in them.

Oh my gawd! No! That is a blast from the past!
If ever my dad was in charge of dinner thats what he made, Fray bentos pie, tinned new potatoes and baked beans! I'm surprised that he knew where the kitchen was!

Sorry but they cannot ever be real cornish pasties as long as they have the crust on the top[:0]. The original design with the crust on the side worked just fine for the tin miners.
Oh and Kate the UK store is a bit light on Jaffa cakes, tizer and Atora after my little foray yesterday[:I]

Haven't seen one in years...thankfully[;)]..was pretty much a staple part of my growing up diet, along with vesta curries [xx(]but the meat and gravy is in the tin and the pastry bit is sorta separated . The tin is a big flat one...more like a pie dish but sealed like a tin can. You open the can and put the pastry bit on the top and cook it

Betenoir, how do mean - crust not on top but only on the side? In my Kiwi ignorance I always thought they were made of filled rounds of pastry folded to make a half circle.
What have I been missing over the years?

My grandmother was Cornish and she made real cornish pasties too!
It had to be swede or turnip, rather than carrot, plus skirt steak and potatoes. All cubed up and cooked from raw, with a shake of salt and pepper-no gravy. She also made them in a circle and pinched them together along the top, not the side.

The original tin miners ones had meat and veg at one end, and apple at the other so I hear, but I've never eaten one like that.

Yes I remember the Fray Bentos tinned pies too-rather nice-but divided between a family of four they didn't go far!

When I was in cornwall last year we tried a cornish pastie and it was the most revolting thing I have ever eaten. I'm sure they can't have been the real thing, they were stodgy, mostly potatoe, no seasoning, yuck. We must have got a really bad bakery. We weren't game to try them anywhere else.

Sue's recipe sounds exactly correct, potato and turnip or rutabagas.
