paster (s.xiii3/4)

[ hap]

[ FEW: 7,748a pasta; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  paste (paster 1); DMF:  pastir; TLF: ; OED:  paste v. / pasted adj.; MED:  pasten v.; DMLBS: 2138c pastillatus ]

Despite a semantic overlap with pester1 (‘to bake’) this verb is believed to be a separate development from the substantive paste1 (‘dough’), found in English sources but not in Continental French or Latin. The ‘a’ in its root precludes a direct association with the Latin verb pistare.
