Re: Polish Easter Traditions

Could someone in Poland take some pictures of Easter baskets on their way to the Church and add them to the page, please?

I'll give it a try. Basket blessing day is tomorrow

Unfortunately, I don't have any Hot Cross Buns ...

Do you have a good recipe?

Re: Polish Easter Traditions

my recipe will be a la Delia ....
(barring the Mixed Spice which I suspect is long gone ...)

Re: Polish Easter Traditions

It's been raining all day so I only managed to get a couple pictures inside the church. Not people on the way to the Church. Sorry, Angela

This is a picture of all the Easter baskets on the table prior to the start of the Easter service and blessing. In the background is a special Easter altar.

This one shows the content of a traditional Polish Easter basket.

Re: Polish Easter Traditions

Thank you, Simon.

Is that salt or sugar (with a spoon) I can see in the basket?

Re: Polish Easter Traditions

My girl is 99% sure it would be salt

Re: Polish Easter Traditions

Our salt always has a little blob of horseradish in it.
