    I cannot imagine a side crimp, so much pastry. Grandparents, parents and me all Cornish borne and bred and never eaten a side crimp. However I would love to know how to get fruit one end and meat and potato the other!!!!

    As the author of the article says the side or top crimp do not matter but contents or taste does! Good quality meat usually skirt cut into small diced/cubed pieces! The powers that be allow minced beef!!
    Ann’s pasties are delicious!
