Lunchtime pasties

You all seem to be such proficient chefs. Well here is a place to share some of that cooking knowledge. Or do you have a cooking problem? Ask away. Jams and chutneys go here too.

They look lovely, I made pasties for the first time not so very long ago, they have become a staple since because they were just so nice!! I make them in bigger batches cos they are a little time consuming but so worth having in the freezer :sunny:

Your pasties look really fab and very yummy - what great looking pastry. I seem to be naff at pastry these days :roll: :( - mind you I haven't made pasties since the one and only time we made them at school! :iconbiggrin:

What are welsh cakes? Savoury?

The seem very similar to Singin Hinnies. My granny made them on a Sunday for tea - yummy memories!

Thanks Susie. I did some griddle scones recently - hadn't realised it was possible but I googled cos (long story) I'm on a special electricity tariff which means I can barely use my oven in winter except on Sundays when it is always a cheap day).

They came out really well but with a slightly toasty taste which you don't get in the oven, but which was nice.

The funniest thing though is that I used some rather old brown flour which the next time I got out of the cupboard, as I was a bit wary, I looked at thru a magnifying glass and yup, sure enough there were little beetly things crawling around in it! So we'd eaten them in the scones! :lol:

Well I need reading glasses - but the other unopened bag was also best before June 09 (it was December) and one of the bugs was crawling on the outside of the packet!

So into the bin they went! :pukeright:

Sounds like psosids. It's not the bugs tha worry me so much as the fact that they are there because bats pooped on the food in the warehouse!

Just googled - they're called PSOCIDS and I haven't found anything about bats in warehouses! They seem to like damp humid environments and books and dust and flour.

Oh well, anyway they didn't bother me or give me the creeps, not like weevil like things do. Ugh! And most of my dry goods are in glass or plastic sealed containers but flour I use a lot of so it isn't (except in this instance the brown flour which I hadn't touched for a long time!) :lol: .

You know... I accidentally clicked on the second page first and I really am not sure I want to read the entire post now in order to find out how 'lunchtime pasties' became 'bat poo'.
