Here you go, Joe

Pork Pies

I suspect the hat is so called because its shape resembles said comestible.

Be wary of them when you are over here though. I have learned in the last 4 years that the best pork pies come from Yorkshire and are eaten with mushy peas and mint sauce. Melton Mowbrey provide a poor copy and the most of the supermarket offering are just unspeakable mutations.

To defend my native Lancashire though I must say that they have never even heard of that rare delicacy, the meat pie. And the things they label potato and meat pies are a travesty compared to the food of the Gods sold by Colin Titley in Swinton :-)

Cheers

In truth I can take or leave the jelly.

Evenings at folk clubs (as we all know) can be of variable quality. All kinds of odd buggers turn up and want to sing.

However the prospect of a nibble at your pie, as recruited collier bolts from a future of domestic bliss with a Kate Rusby soundalike, or as the cabin boy gets his tool out on the Golden Vanity - well it won't be a completely wasted evening as the prison ship lies waiting in the bay, and you wish the young bugger had kept his hands off Trevelyan's corn.

Betsy my dear,
Using the language for almost 60 years, eh?
Sorry but you DID use "it" in the possessive - it should have been "quiet" (sic) obvious to an ill-educated penguin that I was referring to later in the same line ".....praise it's cousin....".

Oh, and "children" in the possessive (line 4) takes an apostophe...
....and "postscript" is one word
....and.....

Best wishes
ES&L

p.s. maybe I need to use one of those "smiley" things when I post next time; detecting tongue-in-cheek posts is apparently not the forte of some :-)

Hello ES & L , pedantic – perhaps another word when you finish reading this .
Maybe I should have written "as in" the Pie Man.
I was saving my typing finger. (Notice in the singular)
Simple Simon is also a childrens game, a crap song and whatever else.
That fact he met a Pie man entitles me to use "ergo" to make the assertion (which I did),that, meat Pies by forming part of this extremely old rhyme, are British Tradition and not as you deduced that he was a Pie man.
Further, I have been using the English language for almost 60 years now, and your Post script is a load of bollocks – learn to read and understand it .
I did not use "it's" in the possessive, it would be quiet clear to an ill-educated penguin to see that "it's" is used as an abbreviation for "it is", and therefore, the apostrophe is used correctly.
I and most others on Mudcat tolerate typing and other grammar mistakes - shit happens . You should learn to do the same.

Point taken weelittle drummer.
Your description of your preferred pie fits my taste precisely but give me lots of jelly as well.
Oh gawd me juices are salivating at the prospect - I'm just gonna have to dash out and get meself one of them juicy buggers from Jones the butcher!!

By the way weelittle drummer I also play a drum (a snare drum) with a morris band. Are we related?

Here's a good tip for you my fellow little drummer.

To prevent drumsticks from slipping out of your hands and skewering the audience on a hot sweaty day simply rub some pork pie jelly onto your hands and the miraculous adhesive properties of the jelly prevents said calamity from ever occuring .

Marvellous things pork pies!!
Lots of uses!!

Surely "Simple Simon" the Pie man , is British tradition.
Ergo, meat Pies are British Tradition.
So whether it's Pork or another kind of meat - the Pie is King, although,we must not forget to praise it's cousin - the Pasty.

All I'm saying if you're taking a pie into a session - risking censure from those who don't like to disturb the aura of culture and the sepulchral tone of traditional folksong - have a good pie!

My preference is always for one with little chunks of meat - rather than a smooth textured filling. Also a good thick shiny brown crust that has a gravy type seasoning and some evidence of the oven is nice - perhaps a little blackened burnt bit on the top.

There is no point in risking the ire of the crowd, and then having an unsatifactory pie experience.

If you had to choose the ultimate pork pie for a session - where would you get it?

Keith Poynter of Heanor in Derbyshire was the best pork pie and sausage maker I ever knew. But he's retired.

Theres a shop in Bakewell opposite the newsagent that's quite good. Not in Keith's class, but pretty decent.
