Reblogging one of my favourite wartime pastie recipes.
If I had time to bake and could find my cooking utensils (packed away because of the move next weekend) I would definitely cook these today and serve them cooled with a nice crisp salad and a pint of beer!
6 days until we move!
In the WW2 recipe book ‘Good Eating’ published in the 1940s by the ‘Daily Telegraph’ and which included wartime recipes tried and tested by readers, I came across a recipe for ‘Kentish Pasties’.
This particular recipe, according to the reader, was for a popular pasty distributed by mobile canteens and pie stations at Sevenoaks Rural District during the war.
Using the ingredients in the recipe, I was able to make three huge pasties which could easily be cut in two, one half for your dinner (served with veggies and gravy) and one half for your lunch the next day (although I am sure if you were working on the land a whole pasty for lunch would be appreciated) I also added two teaspoons of Marmite and one chopped leek which added to the flavour as it was a little bland without.
Overall I found this very filling and tasty!
