Anns Pasties..
Had these a few times.
'the gurt licker' = massive beast of a pasty

[Link]

only thing i can manage from Greggs is the bean melt or the bacon, cheese savoury.
the sausage rolls & pasties have absolutely no taste, just bland pastry.

 


Kids,tired of being bothered by your pesky parents?
Then leave home, get a job & pay your own bills, while you still know everything.

Despite living in the North East for a number of years I don't think I ever ate a Greggs pasty but I have tried Cornwall's own Ginsters pasty and they are truly foul

I don't know why, but I "LOL-ed" at the end of your sentence; I suppose because of its unexpected turn.

Incidentally (and no doubt uninterestingly) my aged uncle lives in Callington and he worked at the Ginsters factory for many years. I think he ate the products because staff got hold of them for next-to-nothing, but he much preferred a fresh pasty from an independent baker.

Last time in England, I had a traditional cornish pastie in Bude, it was lovely, each to there own.

Ginsters are disowned by everyone living in Cornwall as an abomination and exploitation. You won't find them being sold in Cornwall. All the production is transported up country. They are truly awful.

You wouldn't get the same welcome up here in multi cultural London. I wish I lived in a one community town like you.

Then why don't you?

There's no border control between Devon and Cornwall. Plenty of work. Housing is getting more expensive, but still cheaper than the south-east.

My neighbour goes holidaying in Cornwall most years and he always brings me back some genuine locally made pasties and they are delicious

Why wait? At least one of the bakeries send frozen pasties in boxes of 12. Costs a bit for the transportation, mind you! I am lucky! We can buy very good frozen pasties here at 5 for 4. Cooks in an hour (or 30 mins in an air fryer) so always keep a stock. Wrapped in foil, they stay warm for 2 or 3 hours and with a flask of coffee make a great lunch halfway through a cliff top walk.

My Dad was evacuated to Redruth during the war and afterwards stayed in touch with the family he was lucky enough to have been sent to.

Old Mrs Webb made the best pasty I've ever tasted. Probably the best thing I've ever tasted. It would be my request for my last meal if I was on death row. She passed her recipe on to my Mum and she then made the best pasties I'd ever tasted.

Sadly, neither Mrs Webb nor my Mum are with us any longer and the recipe that was kept in the kitchen cupboard has been lost for ever. Whenever I get the chance I try a real Cornish pasty but nothing's ever quite matched up with Mrs Webb's.

 


Living down here does have some advantages. At least you can see them cry.

Nice story.

The locally born people here do know how to produce some mouthwatering pasties. The cottage I moved to when I first came here had previously been occupied by a farmworker and his wife, who taught at the local school, for more than 50 years. Sadly, they had passed away, but I was shown pictures of him eating an enormous pasty produced by his wife. It would have lasted me a week. My neighbour there is Cornish, hardly ever leaves the village, and regularly batch produces wonderful pasties for her extended family. And me when I am lucky!

Your Mrs Webb was part of a tradition that lives on.

There is a Scottish version called a Bridie. Not the same because they only have steak mince, sometimes onion too, the mass produced ones are a bit hit and miss but when butchers make them they are usually very good.

When Cornwall becomes multi cultural and un friendly and built over where would you suggest living?

But answer to your question is we will be moving out of s*** hole croydon and London once the kids have been through school in a couple of years..
