Easter Recipes & Menu's

Pickled Beets are my favorite Easter food,

The recipe is modified from a recipe taken from
"Women's Day Encyclopedia of Cookery" Volume 2 published in 1966.

Scandinavian Pickled Beets
1 cup cider vinegar
2 onions thinly sliced
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon peppercorns
1 bay leaf
4 cups (2 large cans) sliced or small whole beets, or both, reserve liquid.
In pan, combine all ingredients except beets with 1 cup liquid from beets. Add beets. Bring to the boil. For a sweeter pickle add more sugar. Serve hot or cold.
For great pickled eggs add peeled hard boiled eggs to the cooled beet pickling liquid. Let eggs pickle for several days for color to the yolk.
Beets, (without eggs) store well for several weeks in the fridge. Store eggs, in liquid, separate from beets, also in the fridge. Makes 12 servings.



Resurrection Cookies
To be made the evening before Easter.

You will need:
1 C. pecans
1 tsp. vinegar
3 egg whites
Pinch of salt
1 C sugar
Zipper baggie
Wooden Spoon

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place pecans in sipper baggie and let children beat them with the wooden spoon to break into small pieces. Explain that after Jesus was arrested, He was beaten by the Roman soldiers. Read John 19:1-3.
Let each child smell the vinegar. Put 1 tsp. vinegar into mixing bowl. Explain that when Jesus was thirsty on the cross he was given vinegar to drink. Read John 19:26-30.
Add egg whites to vinegar. Eggs represent life. Explain that Jesus gave His life to give us life. Read John 10:10-11.
Sprinkle a little salt into each child's hand. Let them taste it and brush the rest into the bowl. Explain that this represents the salty tears shed by Jesus' followers, and the bitterness of our own sin. Read Luke 23:27.
So far the ingredients are not very appetizing. Add 1 C. sugar. Explain that the sweetest part of the story is that Jesus died because He loves us. He wants us to know and belong to Him. Read Psalms 34:8 and John 3:16.
Beat with a mixer on high speed for 12 to 15 minutes until stiff peaks are formed. Explain that the color represents the purity in God's eyes of those whose sins have been cleansed by Jesus. Read Isa. 1:18 and John 3:1-3.
Fold in broken nuts, Drop by teaspoons onto wax paper covered cookie sheet. Explain that each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus' body was laid. Read Matt.27:57-60.
Put the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door and turn the oven OFF. Give each child a piece of tape and seal the oven door. Explain that Jesus' tomb was sealed. Read Matt 27:65-66.
Explain that they may feel sad to leave the cookies in the oven overnight. Jesus' followers were in despair when the tomb was sealed. Read John 16:20 and 22.
On Easter morning, open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Notice the cracked surface and take a bite. The cookies are hollow! On the first Easter Jesus' followers were amazed to find the tomb open and empty. Read Matt 28:1-9.

Here's our favorite Easter menu, after years of trying new things!!
Potato Salad
Green Beans
Sweet Potato Souffle
Deviled Eggs



Buy a Coconut Layer Cake... and an extra bag of coconut...
Mix a little green food coloring with grated coconut. Place colored coconut in center of cake and make a nest. Fill with colored jelly beans and position candy Easter Bunny next to nest. (start with a very small amount of green coloring, you can always add more if you want)


Hot Cross Buns

Hot cross buns,
One a penny buns;
One a penny,
Two a penny,
Hot cross buns.
Fresh, sweet buns,
Come and buy my buns;
One a penny,
Two a penny,
Fresh, sweet buns.
Nice, light buns,
Buy my currant buns;
Come and try them,
Then you'll buy them,
Nice, light buns.
