Thanks--- I've lost 4 stone since July but I'm going to make this fab recipe and on Christmas day I'm having Pricey's pie and sloe gin in abundance---for one day only Laughing

Almost the same as mine, but I put in some cayenne pepper - about half a teaspoonful and for special occasions I put fruit on the top and let the jelly set over that too. Try apricots or cranberries. You can use dried and reconstituted or tinned but I've never tried frozen.


For a similar but lighter taste - usually preferred by the kids - use half chicken and half pork and I pop a bit of tarragon in as well as the sage.

Enjoy!!

Anyone fancy a pork pie at the mid-Wales do?

I have some pork in the freezer...

I made this last year and the year before, and it has now solved some very tricky presents (you know, those difficult chaps that have everything they want, and are horrible to buy for?) as the recipients have requested them.

Can this be made without the streaky bacon? If so what do I use in place of it or do i do it merely without ?

Could this be made by mincing the pork as well? I don't like big chucks in my pork pie.
mochyn

The bacon isn't essential but adds flavour.

I often use a mix of minced and finely diced pork.

It is heavier if you mince the meat, it will come out more like a sausage roll Wink I'd layer some sliced chicken breast between the mince.

Do you add gelatine to the stock to help it set?
mochyn

\never needed gelatine, just use whatever trotters I have in the freezer. And I have been known to use layers of pheasant breast...
