The Coal Miner's Fast Food - Cornish Pasties

Posted for Zaar World Tour. This is a recipe with deep and interesting historical significance... nothing says "Cornwall" more than the Cornish Pasty. It was the meal of choice for coal miners, as it was a ultimate own pre packaged "fast food" of it's day, that was practical to eat by holding the crust in coal stained fingers, economical to make and filling. Recipe is adapted from "Favourite English recipes- Traditional fare from around the Counties'. If you make it before I do, I would very much appreciate your feedback. Please Note: Americans know Swede as "rutabaga" and the Scottish call it "neeps". A websearch tells me that Swede is a fairly recent root vegetable, and is thought to have originated around the 17th century in Bohemia and is the result of a cross between a cabbage and a turnip. It's popular in colder European countries and is a hardy vegetable similar in texture to turnip. ZWT REGION: England.
