[ gdw]

[ FEW: 8,602a pistor; Gdf: ; GdfC: ; TL: ; DEAF:  paste (pasterie); pestrir (pesture); DMF:  pasterie; TLF: ; OED: ; MED: ; DMLBS: 2295b pistura 2 ]

Despite the formal similarity and overlap in sense with pasterie, this is probably not the same word, cf. the commentaries to paster and pester1. See also pestrie, which may be the same word.
