Crimping the edge of a pasty
Paul Hollywood shows you the traditional way to seal a pasty by crimping it.
-Crimping involves making small twists along the sealed edge. Traditionally Cornish pasties have around 20 crimps.
-To crimp the edge of a pasty, push down on the edge of the pasty with your finger and twist the pastry over. When you’ve crimped along the edge, fold the end corners underneath.
