Boney Pie

Location:Cradley Heath

“Another dish I remember having as a child was Boney Pie at my Aunt Lydia’s. This was made of pork bones, that you could buy quite cheaply, and onions. And these were cooked first. You’d put the bones and onions inside the pastry case, with the pastry all the way around, and bake until the pastry was done. It was absolutely delicious. You pulled the meat off the bones.”
Joan Tromans
