to save me typing ive scanned part of it in



As the pie cools pour some of the liquid into it, using a small funnel into the central hole. Allow the liquid to seep in, then add some more until it has all been absorbed in the pie. Chill thoroughly, preferably overnight but remove from the fridge at least 1 - 2 hours before serving.

hmmm sounds tasty. this was my boxing day game pie, my first attempt might do things a little different next time (bigger than expected, so short on belly pork) but it tasted fine:







modified from Hugh Furry Wimblestool's pork pie [game: partridge, rabbit and pheasant, with minced belly pork]

Looks good to me, I was always worried the hot water crust wouldn't stand up during cooking, but it does. :-)

At last!  A recipe using hot water crust written by someone who knew what they were doing!

Most recipes using this pastry tell you to make that first, then do the filling.  Well, if you really want to try and handle something incredibly brittle, go ahead.  You're much better making the filling first.

If your pastry does go too firm, you can soften it by putting in a very cool (40C) oven for a couple of minutes.

Regrettably, I had to learn this by experience.

Thanks for bringing a good post back to the surface. We have got dozens of pheasants and rabbits in the freezer and a few moments ago we were quite literally discussing what to do with them.

Well, Bodger, if you have more than you can deal with, I'm sure I could help! <g>  I've only one rabbit and no pheasants at the moment.

When making game pies you have two options to make a good pie into a great pie.  

1.  Add 1 smoked oyster (tinned) per pie.

2. Add a dash of Anchovy Essence to the meat.

I have made hundreds of them.

Mmm, I like the sound of a smoked Oyster in the pie. ' must try that. In the meantime, here's some shameless pride:

If it tasted as good as it looks, you have a very talented wife, you lucky man.

I think I will go the other way .......Anchovy Essence

Love the decoration.  Have you tried decorating the sides in the same way?

Keep your eyes open for one of the lozenge shaped pie tins at car boots or jumbles, they sometimes show up as unwanted Xmas presents.  The little ones are over 100 new, but I managed to pick up an unused couple for a fiver at a car boot in Cornwall just before we moved to Corfu.

Nope, she hasn't decorated the sides but I might give it a mention.

We've been after one of the Lozenge shaped tin's for ages now but just aren't willing to pay the asking price up 'til now. Keep hoping for a bargain tho  

Here's a picture of one of her earlier efforts. We've got a friend who beats during the season and brings us all the unwanted game afterwards. The deal is we (she) provides a couple of pies for the Beaters day shoot at the end of January. Everyone's happy
