This week Carol Taylor shares us the recipes for two sweet Easter treats that will please all the family… and getting the children involved in the kitchen produces some creative biscuits.
Easter Time will you have sun or snow? Easter is a time for Easter egg hunts and pretty coloured eggs …For prettily iced Easter biscuits…A time for kids who just love it!
How does the rest of the world celebrate Easter…? Bermudians they make pretty coloured kites with long tails, eat codfish cakes and Hot cross buns.
In the Netherlands a favourite Easter dish is waffles drizzled with Advocaat.
For many Europeans it’s bonfires on Easter Sunday and Monday which legend tells us is to chase away the winter darkness. It is traditional to sit around the bonfire and consume copious amounts of Gin, lager for the boys and snack…No mention of Easter eggs or hot cross buns here…
Ahhhh… The Swedes love their pickled fish and a popular dish is Janssons Temptation which is potato, onions, pickled sardines or sprats baked in cream…How yummy does that sound?…A recipe for my cook book methinks!
The children they dress up as Easter witches and exchange their drawing for sweets.
Now one for the readers…In Norway Easter is known as Easter Crime or Paaskekrim and the Easter weekend is spent watching crime shows on TV, reading Crime Books or playing Yahtzee now that sounds like a plan! Not an egg in sight…
As this is a cookery column I suppose I better do less chat and cook…
Pineapple Carrot Cake.
