Giblet pie?

Postby largewhite » Fri Dec 07, 2012 11:38 am

Hi, I have bought some pigs hearts, livers and kidneys really cheap at the local supermarket and intend to use most of it for including in sausage recipes, but can't help thinking that I could also make a tasty giblet type pie as well. Has anyone any suggestions?

I think that the saying, "To eat humble pie" is actually a corruption of, "To eat umble pie".

If I recall correctly, 'umble pie' is made from the offal (variety meats) of an animal.

Or something similar?

I was watching a programme recently" A Tudor Christmas" (or similar) & that's what they said-----the gentry got the venison & boar etc & the prols got the umble pie--the medieval version of Mcdonalds?

Savoury ducks (faggots) would be my forst choice, covered in a rich gravy made from the cooking juices, delicous.....

Oddley's faggots recipe is good. My dear old dad used to love them. That's what I would do with them.

Yes I agree that the ingredients would make a good faggot or similar, but I am more interested in creating a tasty pie with them.
I looked at the sites Brican posted and have decided to make a traditional style pie, using herby shortcrust pastry and a juicy meaty filling.
I will let you know the results.

Why not combine the two - make a pie incorporating the offal in the filling and also add force-meat balls of a (dryish) faggot mixture.

Damn, now I've made myself hungry! :lol:

Hi, made the pies after first,slow cooking the meat, excellent results although I wish I had cooked the heart a little longer, not that it was tough but it wasn't as tender as I would have liked, and next time I will chop the liver and kidney instead of slicing them to improve the meat texture. All in all though a great result utilising the offal.

The remainder went into sausages, 50 percent minced pork with lots of fat, the remainder of the heart minced, the liver and kidney just roughly chopped, chopped onion, garlic, breadcumbs, salt and lots of black pepper. Just tried them, wow! Out of this world.
