traditional easter recipes

Colored hard-boiled eggs are always popular at Easter, along with chocolate eggs. Baked ham with a brown sugar glaze is a traditional Easter food in the United States. Meat was slaughtered during the fall years ago before there was refrigeration, and any fresh pork not eaten during the winter months was cured for the springtime. The curing process took a while and the first hams were ready around the time of Easter, which is why ham made a natural choice for an Easter meal.

Roast lamb is another Easter food idea, especially in the UK, and this tradition goes back even earlier than Easter, to Passover, a Jewish holiday.
