Pot pie

Pot pie is the North American term for a type of meat pie with a top pie crust that is commonly used throughout the continent, and is most often found in the United States and Canada consisting of flaky pastry. Pot pies may be made with a variety of fillings including poultry, beef, seafood, or plant-based meat substitute fillings, and may also differ in the types of crust. In both countries, various versions exist and can vary significantly in terms of both preparation and ingredients, with chicken pot pie being the most popular variety of the dish.

Archaeologists have discovered gallette pies dating back to the Neolithic Age around 9500 B.C. The Greeks cooked meats mixed with other ingredients in open pastry shells, and these were called artocreas and were then spread to the Romans. In the times of the Roman Empire, these pastries were served at banquets and were prepared with various meats, oysters, mussels, lampreys, and fish and included a crust made of a flour and oil mixture. The royalty nicknamed them “coffins”. Pies spread across medieval Europe during the Crusades. In the 16th century, the English gentry revived the custom of serving pies and the tradition soon swept the country. A British food commenter once described them as, “which they bake in pasties, and this venison pasty is a dainty rarely found in any other kingdom. “The meat pies made by the English of that era (called pot pies in North America) would include various meats such as pork, lamb, birds and game. During the reign of Elizabeth I, English cooks made pies using “chicken peepers,” which consisted of chicks stuffed with gooseberries. The obsession with pies spread to the New World soon after it spread across Europe when the first American settlers took their pie recipes with them when they moved westward.

Homemade chicken and vegetable pot pie, cut open

Pot pie can be prepared in a number of ways including in a skillet over a stovetop, in a baking dish in an oven, or in a pie iron over a campfire. There are numerous other types of pot pies including taco, ham and brie pizza, and steak and mushroom. The pie shell and crust can be made from scratch or can be fashioned from store bought pie crust or biscuit dough and includes ingredients such as butter, lard, olive oil, flour, and shortening. Once prepared and served, the pot pie leftovers can be stored in the freezer for later consumption.

In the Pennsylvania Dutch region, some people make a dish called “bot boi” (or “bottboi” by Pennsylvania German-speaking natives. Pennsylvania Dutch pot pie is a stew without a crust. Most commonly made with chicken, it usually includes homemade dumpling-style dough noodles and potatoes, and sometimes vegetables such as carrots or celery.

Spicy Barbecued Oysters
If you’re intimidated by shucking oysters–this recipe for barbecued oysters is for you. When you grill them, steam builds up inside the shells until they pop open.

Maryland Oyster Stew
This delicate oyster soup recipe sets the tone for celebration at any meal. We made this stew healthier by primarily using low-fat milk and increasing the amount of vegetables. Don’t worry about shucking the oysters–most supermarket seafood departments carry shucked oysters. Serve with crusty bread to sop up all the delicious bits at the bottom of the bowl……

Oysters Rockefeller
Invented at Antoine’s in New Orleans in 1889, oysters Rockefeller was named for John D. Rockefeller, one of the richest Americans at the time, for its rich sauce. Antoine’s has kept the original recipe secret, but basically it includes a cream sauce with spinach and other greens, flavored with Pernod or anisette. This version omits the cream sauce but is still full of flavor……

I love Tea……..

The Tannic Acid in strong Black Tea can tenderize meat in a Stew, as well as reduce the cooking time.Just add 1/2 cup strong Tea to the Stew when you add the other liquid. It will also give your Stew a great brown color.
