Not them miniscule things you get in the supermarket. I mean the kind we used to get from the butchers in big enamel dishes (ashets we called them). They were filled with steak, ox kidney, chopped sausages and a gravy to die for, topped with delicious puff pastry. What a feast!. biggrin.gif

I still make my steak and kidney pies in one of these enamel dishes. I have had mine since 1963 when we were living in Pollokshields. tongue.gif Actually I acquired this ashet from the butchers where we used to sometimes buy the pies. the dishes were supposed to be returned but I guess I stole mine from Menzies the Butcher on Albert Drive. I don't think it's there any more, I wonder if they missed it!!!!!!!! ohmy.gif

We can't find a good ashet here in Canada so a couple of years ago I bought one in a wee ironmongers in Paisley. I know make my steak pies in Canada with the proper ashet. Only thing wrong is I bought a big one and it costs a fortune to make sure it is full enough with stew so that the puff pastry doesn't collapse in the centre. Jaybee

Here is the pie funnel that Jane used to put in the middle of her steak pies. I suppose it also helped to support the pastry.

I always make my pie in the ashet but sometimes if I'm having all the family here I have to go to a big tinfoil pan .I had them all here the Saturday before Christmas .My pie had four kilos of stew .1and a 1/2 pound of links .Plus all the gravy and puff paste .I thought there might have been enough left over to freeze for the two of us for Ney Years but they ate every last bite followed by apple crumble and ice cream .Jist as well they don't all come together once a month laugh.gif

Hi Sumac, I just noticed your posting re the elephant pie funnel tonight. Wow is it that auld, Jane must have brought it from Glasgow when we moved here in 1968, it's no been used in a few years, but still as shiny as ever. I should dig it oot the spoon drawer and display it in the china cabinet as an ornament. tongue.gif

Gaun yersel, George!
I'm only guessing at the age of the pie funnel, but I think it probably is that old. Mine is displayed in my kitchen dresser but still used any time I make a pie. I love my wee elephant.
On Ne'erday, we have our daughter's boyfriend coming so I cheated and ordered our steak pie from our local butcher. It's a huge pie which we collected today, and everybody is looking forward to eating it! Our butcher makes a gorgeous steak pie with only the best beef and pastry, so it's delicious. tongue.gif
Won't be long now!!!
