      Hi everyone, here is the recipe Mother and I worked out together many years ago. She told me that her grandmother (Catherine Laduke Duso) would make 40 of them for Christmas to feed her children and grandchildren.


      Meat Pie Makes 5 pies

      Recipe as given to Ohma Willette by her mother Agnes Shebel about 1982.



      3-4 lb fresh ground pork loin with a minimum of fat

      8 medium potatoes, peeled and coarsely ground

      3 medium onions, coarsely ground

      2 T salt (or to taste start with 1-1/2 teaspoon)

      1 T pepper (or to taste start with 1teaspoon)

      1-1/2 T ground savory (or to taste)

      1 t basil

      Enough water to cover, about 4 cups



      Start on high and stir almost constantly. As it begins to bubble, reduce heat to medium , then low. Keep stiring as this thick mixture burns easily. Cook -- continuing to stir -- till all grayish white and much thicker about 2 hours. If your pork was nice and lean, thicken it with 2/3 C flour mixed with 1-2/2 C water. (If your pork was fatty, chill and remove fat before next step. Then reheat and thicken.)



      Make your pie crust. Mother used Jiffy pie crust mix. You will need enough for top and bottom crusts. Cut a one inch hole in the center of the top crust.



      Bake at 400F for 20 min then lower heat to 350F until the crust is brown and you can see the mixture bubble in the hole you cut in the top crust.
