    A real Cornish Pasty would never conain turnips but only swede, onion, potato and good quality English beef, ( steak or skirt but never mince) plus salt and pepper.

    Re: bloater paste. Sad to say, since Shippams were taken over by Princes, they appear to have discontinued their much-loved bloater and anchovy pastes. They had become harder to find in the shops, and these great 20th-century favourites are no longer available in the 21st century. I am not aware of any alternatives — perhaps someone else is?
