Hi Gail

Nice looking pasty with a genuine hand crimp as well, we do a similar version...genuine cornish with veg farmed in Newquay, hand filled and hand crimped! Congrats on a great blog!

Thank you for introducing me to some new pasty terminology - I was unaware of the 'hand crimping' distinction before, though I realise now it gives that nice crusty, lumpy pastry edging. Perhaps you can answer a query? People often say that historically Cornish pasties had a corner containing a sweet filling, such as jam or apple (when it was miners' food). Is this true or myth? And are any such pasties available commercially? Perhaps I will make my own recipe...
