So why is Easter associated with ham in the first place? History tells us salted pork lasted through the winter and was ready to eat in spring before other fresh meats were available. But perhaps you prefer lamb, another favorite Easter meal. Lamb is traditional because Jesus’ last supper was the Passover meal, and if Jesus ate meat during that meal, it would have been lamb.
So again I say unto you ham or not to ham? What’s your preference?
P.S. Don’t forget to add hot crossed buns to your Easter meal – a must this time of year! 🙂
