While taking a brisk walk this morning into downtown Clawson, I popped into Barbs Pasties. I had driven by many times and always wanted to stop in. While I am originally from Ohio, I remember going up North, into the UP for family vacations, and always stopping at one of the many roadside venues that sold pasties once you crossed over the Mackinac Bridge
More about these delicious little devils after the jump.
Barbs Pasties is a hidden little gem located on Main Street, just on the edge of downtown Clawson. We picked a beef pasties that we warmed up in the oven for lunch,
Upper Peninsula Pasties
Introduced in the United States by Cornish miners who immigrated in the 1800′s hoping to earn a good living in newly developing mines. When the Cornish came to the copper and iron mines of the Upper Peninsula, they contributed skills that were unknown to many of the other groups. Because they looked up to the Cornish miners for their skills in mining, people tended to copy other of their traditions, including the pasty.
We make our pasties from scratch using Barb’s family recipe that has been passed down for generations. The original UP-style beef pasties have ground beef, carrots, potatoes, rutabaga, and onions, along with some salt and pepper. The chicken pasties have ground all white-meat chicken breast, carrots, potatoes, onions, peas, and celery along with some salt, pepper, and poultry seasoning. We make beef and chicken pasties hot every day of the week (except Sunday). We also have cold beef, chicken, and vegetarian pasties 7 days a week. If you would like hot pasties on Sunday or hot Vegetarian Pasties please call us with at least 30 minutes notice and we will be happy to have them ready for you!
