One reason for ham’s inclusion in the Easter feast is size. A single ham is usually enough to feed a large group of people, so it’s ideal for a big family dinner such as Easter. Lamb is also a popular Easter protein, sheep tend to be born in the early days of spring, making them ideal for slaughter and consumption right around Easter time.
So what will you have for you Easter feast, ham, lamb, or something a little less traditional? No matter what you plan to have, remember to enjoy it with those you love.
