    I'll eat most things, but the jelly in pork pies is **** ing revolting. It's like eating cat food. <retch>

    Personally I open them up, remove the jelly (which then slithers away back to its evil lair), replace it with a suitably flavoursome sauce, such as mustard, bbq sauce or apple sauce, and put them back together again.

    It's aspic, which is what falls to the bottom of the fat when the fat's rendered into lard. The aspic's not fat, it's just gelatin and tasty pork goodness
    i seee, thanks

      If you're in London, you don't; only Northerners really like savoury pies, so Southern shops don't sell them.

      Pork pies are my nightmare food! Pork is one of the worst meats, firstly. Secondly, they contain some sinisterly sweet looking jelly inside. Thirdly, it was my nickname at primary school!

      :confused: I live in Hertfordshire and pork pies (and other savoury pies) are sold in every supermarket and most convenience stores! Also pretty much every bakery sells savoury pies....

        Well, maybe they're more popular there. I just know that I've got family who simply can't get hold of pork pies when they go South.

        That's odd. I've got family in Carlisle and Newcastle and went to university at Lancaster. I've never noticed any difference in the amount of savoury pies sold at each end of the country.

        Ugh I don't like jelly. I find it too slimy and briny. It wouldn't be too bad if it was spread throughout the pie, but I tuck into all the tasty meat and pastry, and then I'm left over with a shell of pastry filled with all the jelly which I have to throw away.
        The pork pie is not much more efficient than the apple to eat.
