She said in Ireland, the pastry came to a thick seam at the top to use as a handle. The coal miners would take these for lunch in the mines. Since their hands were dirty, they would hold the "handle" and eat around it. The "handle" got thrown to the birds when they came out of the mines each day. And along with meat, gravy(not too much), and other veggies, she put rutabagas in them.....

In other places, they are known as meat pies, and yes, the miners put gravy in their meat pies. My mom's theory is that the wife chopped up whatever was left from dinner to make the meat pie, hence the variety of versions of pasties. It depends on where you lived, what was available, and what you could afford.

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow. Just north of here!!
