purple-sprouting pies shadow

Cut these this  morning, steamed them for lunch. Served them with anchovy butter (butter mashed up with a tin of anchovies and a little lemon juice). Sublime.

At the Farmers Market this morning round meat filled pies are labelled Sussex Belles.  Something new to me but they sound like a revived tradition.  I ask the stall holder about them . "They've been around for about 2 months", she says, "I come from Cornwall where I used to make Cornish pasties, and I thought of starting something similar round here."

Under a hedgerow
A cat  glides and vanishes
A living shadow
