For years now, I have been working semi-laborlessly, on starting a new Easter tradition for homes across the world to enjoy. As far as I know, it remains only a Schafer family Easter event. Eating rabbit, err the Easter Rabbit for dinner may sound horrific but allow me to tell a little story about Plump Peter Cottontail.
Plumb Peter Cotton’s tail hops, maybe even saunters, down the bunny trail to tell the good news of the risen Christ and celebrates by delivering peeps and chocolate statues of himself.
This is the story we’ve heard for generations but through some poor German translation (not really) the symbolic event of what happens next got lost. You see we missed the part about Peter sacrificing himself for our dinner and rising again for the next year’s Easter event. All you need to do is tell him oven or frying pan.
Now isn’t that a nicer, complete and symbolic reminder of what Easter is about? Convinced to start your new Easter tradition? Here are some recipes to get your taste buds roaring:
- Ricks Fried Rabbit – can’t go wrong with simple and oily
- Hasenpfeffer! German cuisine with bacon!
Have a rabbit recipe? Ideas to add to the new and complete story of Easter and a rabbit? Please share!
