Subject: Folklore: St. Piran's Day Greetings
From: Polly Squeezebox
Date: 05 Mar 09 - 05:57 AM

On St. Piran's Day (the Patron Saint of Cornwall and tin miners) we send appropriate greetings to all our Cornish friends - whether they be Cornish born or Cornish dwellers. Who knows, we may one day win the lottery (!!! wish, wish) and be able to live where our hearts are at home and our spirits soar.

Blessings to all,

Pauline, Jack & Zak

Never eat the pasties - any onion is too many onions. But Saffron Cake - oooooer. Found a shop that will post them to you, in Exeter.

My uncle Paul woke me this morning with his St Pirans greeting. Watch out next month for my grandmothers recipe book, 'Grandma Tonkins Cornish recipes'. I will be selling it throughout the up and coming Show of Hands tour to help finance young peoples berths on my forthcoming baltic tall ships expedition.

St Piran is the patron saint of tinners but also generally regarded as the original patron saint of Cornwall. Petroc was 6th century and was responsible for the building of the church in Bodmin and setting up the bishopric of Cornwall, hence havuing a later claim on the title. Anyway, It is Perrantide at the moment and this weeknd sees sessions and celebrations all over cornwall with a march through Truro on Monday followed by a session in the pub and sessions all over the Duchy.

Will highly suggest to Tom he make pasties for Monday's supper. Beef, onions, potato and rutabaga, please. We served pasties and porter at our potluck wedding reception back in 1982. Cut our wedding cake with a 16th century main gauche.

Pasties are rooted in my youth -- I was born in Stambaugh in Michigan's Upper Peninsula -- pretty much settled by the Cornish miners who came for the iron and copper.

THE PRAYER OF ST. PIRAN.

Harr us, O Lord, and be debonair: for ours is a particular case. We are not like the men of St. Neot or the men of St. Udy, who are for ever importuning Thee upon the least occasion, praying at all hours and every day of the week. Thou knowest it is only with extreme cause that we bring ourselves to trouble Thee. Therefore regard our moderation in time past, and be instant to help us now. Amen.

Q (a Q of a previous age, noy ours)

The secret of my pasties is that I top the ingredients with black pepper and a teaspoon of clotted cream before sealing them. Keeps them juicy inside.
