Pork & Chicken Picnic Pie

Post by Icefever »

Had this recipe from an old book for a pork & chicken pie, but there was sugar and a couple of other items in there that had me thinking that it would be too sweet for us. With an update for our taste buds, I decided to give it a go on Sat.....this is the video if you want to have a go....it's well worth it..taste brilliant.

Thanks guys.. I love meat pie's..started off last year working with hot water pastry and making our own. I've been trying to buy a pie dolly, but they're hard to find, Melton Mowbray has the small ones, but no larger ones. Nothing on the Bay so decided to make my own from cherry wood, we had a tree given to us for the log burner....there were some nice sized boughs just fit for the job.

Surely you've a decent local timber merchant for the respective hardwood, and someone local to "turn it" into shape ?

Probably mate, but it's finding both, and then at what cost???...besides that I'm enjoying making myself...I do have of the old Black & Decker lathes that work off a drill but it's donkey years old not sure if I trust it not to put a chunk of wood into orbit, and me along with it... :lol: :lol:

Well, I was thinking that a few.locations have wood turning/wood lathe clubs etc.

Cos while the B&D widget would probably work, if you don't have the carving chisels and gouges a club based spotter would.

Plus a beautiful bit of hardwood, I dunno maybe some black walnut or.something with figured grain.

Certainlyake a pretty bit of kitchen deco.etc.

But whatever, twas just an idea/suggestion etc πŸ˜πŸ‘

Yup, glassware is fab. Just warm them gently with water and the dough is naturally non stick.

There was a big Too-dah a year or so ago when one of the major pie makers stopped making them.
Your average Glaswegian considers them as national as Haggis and deep fried Mars bar.

Sorry guys & gals...

Missed this thread for a couple of days.

Mash...bread pies are on my list mate, but I do love working with hot water pastry. Been hold back on my fast-dwindling amount of flour that I have, but clicked very lucky on Mon, there's an old water mill about 3,5 miles from us that still mills local grain. I have had the odd bag or two off him, but when lockdown hit us, everyone jumped on him and you had to book a spot to collect.
Anyway he phoned me and said he had a 25kg bag of strong flour (14.5% protein) if I still wanted it, needless to say, I shot off down and picked it up...so now I have no worries and can carry on whatever.

Link if your interested... http://www.charlecotemill.co.uk/

That's a good win mate. Bread flour does seem a little less affected. Its nice to see business looking after their regulars. Nice.

It is a little odd, cheap plain flour is everywhere.
Strong bread flour, and self raising is harder, if not impossible to find.

I'll let you try first, I'm working on another pie, checked out the www and can't find what I'm thinking about. Found just a couple of vids that use the name/description of what I have in mind, but they are not what I want to bake...watch this space.
