Every family celebrates Easter in a unique way. Although glazed ham and hot cross buns are probably the first foods that think of when thinking about Easter culinary customs, there are also plenty of other meals from around the world that are deserving of a taste as well. Here are some of the many food lists you can try:
According to the Oxford Companion to Food, these celebratory rolls have their origins in ancient Egypt, Rome, and Greece where they were used as tokens of respect for their deities. Thereafter, the sweetbreads gained popularity at Easter, particularly in England where bakers were prohibited from selling spice bread outside of specific occasions such as the Friday before Easter.
Because many English people thought hot cross buns prepared on Good Friday weren't going to go bad, they preserved them as lucky charms, took them on trips with them, or buried them in grain heaps to keep vermin away. In addition to serving as a sweet, buttery element to a formal Easter supper today, they are primarily depictions of the Christian sign of the cross.
Martin Luther, an important participant in the Protestant Reformation, is credited with creating the first Easter egg hunt. The eggs were hidden by males for women and kids to discover. It is intended that locating an Easter egg during the hunt will serve as a reminder of the discovery made by Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome when they arrived at Jesus' cave and discovered it to be unoccupied.
Though it's difficult to pinpoint, either someone in Germany or a German immigrant in America is likely to have invented the first chocolate bunny. The bunny-shaped chocolate mold can be seen for the first time in Munich around the 1850s. The pastry and some sugar bunnies —which had hard-boiled eggs in it— were being made by the 19th century.
At about the same period, a Pennsylvania businessman named Robert L. Strohecker created a 5-foot-tall chocolate rabbit in the front window of his drugstore. A particular Easter treat, chocolate bunnies could be ordered from a catalog in the United States by 1925. Therefore, the remaining is scrumptious history.
Sam Born, the creator of the Just Born candy brand, came up with those sugary-sweet marshmallow treats in the 1950s. These delicacies are particularly suited for Easter because he opened up a business in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The time it took to build a single Peep used to be 27 hours, but thankfully Born's son found a method to speed up the procedure so that it currently only needs six minutes!
Easter chicks continue to be the most popular Peeps, despite being come in a range of seasonal shapes and flavors, as stated by the manufacturer.
