This recipe originated in Cornwall England, and was adapted by my Great Grandmother Johns. It was originally made for the coal miners and wrapped in butcher paper. The hard pastry shell would keep the juicy contents fresh until the miners were ready to eat. My Grandma would serve with relishes and Coca Cola. If you want to make these more quickly, you can use refrigerated pie crusts instead of the pastry recipe.
This recipe makes four generous pasties, enough for a very proper lunch. Prepared, whole wheat pastry dough is cut into squares and heaped with a hearty, cooked filling of onions, carrots, diced potatoes, turnips, mushrooms and Cheddar cheese. The pastries are folded into triangles, sealed and baked until golden brown.
