Rocky’s Pasties in Wharton

Rocky’s Pasties in Wharton

Every culture’s got a meat pie. Turns out the miners from Cornwall, England, who settled in the hills of Morris County, N.J. have one too: a pastie. Rocky’s in Wharton has been selling them for four generations.

The meat pastie (pronounced PAS-tee) is made with beef, potatoes and onions, wrapped in a golden, flaky pastry.
