Pasty History

Pasty, pronounced "Past E".  

Picture depicts miners from the East Vulcan Mine 1892 ⛏️ 

Just like many stories of food history, our pasty culture is due to the Cornish people who came to work in the US mines and brought their delicious recipes with them. Eventually the Cornish arrived here in little Upper Michigan; rich in iron ore used to make the early railroads and later used in cars. The miners took these Cornish meat pies into the mines as a hearty hot meal.  They ate by holding the pasty by the crust rather than using plates and utensils.

 The picture depicts a miner heating the pasty on his shovel.  Pasties have remained in the region as a tradition and part of the heritage that makes this mining/lumber country so unique.

Pastys are now being spread throughout the Upper Midwest as a modern pre-cooked meat and potato pie.  The Pastys are usually found in local Ma and Pa shops providing a variety of special touches to the pasty tradition.  The Pasty Oven pasty has expanded distribution to 5 states; where now pastys can be a consistent, wholesome, large, 30% meat, convenient, delicious, pre-cooked meal.  Find them in your grocery store in the meat, frozen or deli departments.  Food from the past fitting perfectly in our fast paced future.  The Pasty Oven pasty is food your mom would make.  Ask for them in your local grocery store.
