eddee did you buy your pasties in the chippie on the corner of Mount Street and Glentoran Street? Anyone remember what that chippie was called? I know there was another chippie in the other side of Mount Street owned by Mrs Dane but dont think her pasties were in the same league. Eddee, my aunt and uncle lived in Lecale Street. They were called Seaton. I lived in Malcolm Street till 1963. Beatties chippie in Tates Avenue was, and still is very good.

Eddee herewith the recipe for Pasties.... Combine cooked sausage meat and mashed potatos. More meat that potatos also finely
chopped onion in a bowl. Add a dash of nutmeg, same of Mace, allspice, corriander, ground ginger, ground cloves. Lots of Pepper.
Mix all together and form patties then dust with flour. Freeze and when they are frozen you are ready to cook. Batter is Self Rising
flour and soda water to form a soft batter. With a spatula drop into deep fat and fry untill golden brown.
Hope you enjoy with a few homemade chips, bread and butter. Good luck.

Hi mcd - Malcolm Street was in the other part of Mount Street and it ran from Mount Street to the Albertbridge Road. The Duke of York pub was at the bottom of the street where it also joined Clermont Lane.

A quiet wee pub the Duke Of York.
I remember goin' in one Wednesday night. There was two or three fellas playin' dominos in the corner, seemed to be nobody behind the bar.
After a few minutes I spoke to the fellas in the corner to see if they knew where the barman was. One of them got up, moanin' his head off, "Name a Jasus" he says' "A man can't even get playin' a game of dominos without somebody wantin' to buy bloody drink" ;)

Freeze and when they are frozen you are ready to cook.

Hi Betty,  Thanks a lot for your pastie recipe which is really delicious and the most authentic we've had outside of Belfast.  We made a batch of about 20, ate 6 of them, and left the rest in the freezer.  When we want to have them again, should we thaw, or partially thaw them before putting them in the hot oil?  Would appreciate your advice.  (I'm not much of a cook, as you would have already guessed.)  :swoon: :swoon:
