The pasty has been traditional food fare since the early logging and mining era in northern Michigan and other regions.

It was introduced by early Cornish immigrants who came to America and look for work.

At a time when working hard and fast was a necessary way of life, it was the pasty that gradually caught the eye of fellow immigrants across the land who realized the simplicity of the food item and how easy it was to “pack” for lunch.

Pasty Cartoons Based On History Of The Pasty!

Miners who worked underground could easily carry a couple of them in their jackets and when the need for a snack came upon them, just take it out and grab a bite.

Imagine working in a logging camp for 3 or 4 hours up to your waist in snow and cold . . how inviting was the thought of that pasty, waiting in the lunch pail to eat in the dinner shack.

There are many ways to make pasties and the ingenious chef or cook can easily improvise with the recipe included below. Bon Appétit !

What are pasties and how do you make them? Well, here you go:

This recipe makes 10 pasties.

Chop the carrots and onions.

Dice the potatoes and rutabagas in a 3/8-inch dice. Mix all the filling ingredients together and set aside. Mix the flour and salt.

Cut in the shortening, as for pie crust. Add the water and mix gently just until the dry particles are absorbed; do not over mix.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.On a floured surface, roll 4-ounce balls of dough into circles about the size of a dinner plate. Put about 12 ounces of filling on one half.
