    Baby Kato's Note:

    This is a family favourite--my mom's wonderful east coast pork pie recipe, which I have added to over the years. Mom makes hers with a crust made from tea biscuits--I use a flaky pastry crust--both work well. Serve with red pepper jelly or chili sauce on side.

      DEFINITELY A GREAT TREAT, & something out of the ordinary! Just wish I could find crabapples somewhere, but no luck ~ I grew up in northeastern Montana & had them all the time! Anyway, I followed your great recipe & still have one pie in the freezer! I keep a cranberry & mild salsa sauce on hand much of the time, & that went very well with this pork pie! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed in the Family Picks part of Zaar World Tour 4]

      The blend of fruit and spices is just right to give a rather bland meat a wonderful lift. Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe.

      What a wonderful discovery! I'd never heard of tourtiere. This recipe is one of DH's favorite dishes from Zaar. I loved the red pepper jelly with it. A taste sensation for sure.
