Beautiful place "The Porkies". Anywhere along the Lake's shore line are wonderful places to be .

When we visited up North when we were kids, we made pasties one day, and had a picnic up near Lake of the Clouds the next day. But you are right, anywhere along the lake is beautiful.

I like to look at Michigan (Detroit) from the Windsor side of the river - much cleaner and safer Wink

Have you ever made them before? If not, may I suggest a short cut for the first time? Use Pillsbury refridgerated pie crust(or the store brand), roll it so it's a little thinner than it comes in the box, and cut off about 1/3 of the dough. Then put the 2 pieces you cut off together in a ball and roll out for the 3rd pasty. You'l get 3 pasties to a box instead of 2. We do this because the crust gets too thick on the pasties if you use a whole sheet for each one. I was working on the assembly line for our Christmas pasty making, peeling potatoes, onions, and rolling out dough. Yeah, we had pasties for Christmas dinner. Everyone was thrilled!

You can fuss with the pie dough the second time. Getting the filling right is key to the taste, so work on that first.

I haven't had a chance to try these yet, but homemade crusts are the way to go for me. I have worked with pastas and pierogis before, I think I could do this Smile

RE: Michigan U.P. Pasty recipes
Cornish pasties are the best! I was lucky to have the real deal on a regular basis when I lived in Tintagel (county Cornwall), England many moons ago. Often the meat was superduper fresh, since the shop[pe] that sold them was connected to the local butcher.... I don't think I've ever tried making them, but these recipes sound too yummy to pass up! Thanks for sharing!

Blah blah blah....yada yada yada!

RE: Michigan U.P. Pasty recipes
My Irish neighbor made these for us once, but she didn't have a specific name for them. 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.....

If I'd known you were French, I'd have worn galoshes...
