The holidays of Passover and Easter come at the same time every year. I looked at both some Jewish and Christian explanations for this phenomena. I share here to remind us all that we come from the same source. These holidays occur, generally, at the same time of early spring each year. The Jewish holiday is a reminder of the exile they experienced in Egypt. The Christians believe that the resurrection of Christ occurred on the first Sunday of the month.
No matter what religion you follow, there are particular foods associated with each holiday. This post shares some of those traditions. Our first offering is a Spinach Potato Nest Bites created by May I have that Recipe.
This next recipe is an Ecuadorian Easter recipe of Fried Plantains from Laylita’s Recipes.
The traditional main course at a Seder, the Passover meal, is brisket. This Brisket recipe from Big Girl Small Kitchen.
The main course we associate most with Easter is the ham. This beautiful Ham comes courtesy of Food and Wine.
We need some sides for our meal. These Braised Artichoke Hearts found at The New York Times article by Tara Parker-Pope.
Many families serve a big brunch for Easter. This Asparagus Frittata would be good for brunch or as a side found at MrFood.com.
We finish our meal with dessert ideas from each tradition. These Macaroons are found at Recipes Reinvented.
Finishing with the Easter egg idea. Interestingly, this is Raw Macaroon from Greenster.com.
