Pork, Plum And Sage Pasties


225 g (8 oz.) lean mince pork

2 fresh plums, stones removed and chopped

1 tbsp plum jam

1 tbsp fresh sage, chopped

500 g [1 lb] packet ready made shortcrust pastry

egg, to glaze

milk, to glaze


[1] Pre-heat oven to gas 4, 180º C / 355º F, fan 160º C / 320º F. Place pork, plums, jam, seasoning and sage in a large bowl, mix together well.

Roll out the pastry and using approx 17 cm (6½ in) bowl/saucer cut out 4 circles, re-roll and you should be able to cut one more.

Place a large spoonful of the mixture into the centre of the circle, lightly brush the edges of the pastry with a little water and fold the pastry around the filling. Press edges together and seal with a crimp pattern.

Brush with egg and milk glaze, and place on a non-stick baking tray (or use baking parchment). Bake in a preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes until pastry is golden brown.

Serve hot or cold, great with a fruity relish or chutney.
