    Default 17 Recipes for the Best Easter Ham Ever

    https://a.msn.com/r/2/BBVxBfB?m=en-u...rID=InAppShare

    Browned and coated in a shimmering glaze, your Easter ham is sure to be the centerpiece of your post-Lenten celebration. Easter Sunday is the time to celebrate the end of a long fast, but why do we eat ham? As it turns out, the choice of ham, which is especially popular in North America on Easter, is more practical than religious. Sheep have never been raised as livestock as commonly in North America as in Europe, so lamb simply didn’t make it to American tables. While Jesus undoubtedly would have been more likely to dine on lamb than pork — it’s not kosher, after all — Americans have traditionally eaten ham because it was what was available.

    When more Europeans began settling in the Americas in the 16th and 17th centuries, pigs were more plentiful than lambs, and their meat was easy to cure and store through winter, making an Easter ham the most practical way to celebrate the end of a Lent.

    Today, we can’t help but carry on the tradition, because ham simply tastes good and makes an impressive presentation on your Easter table. Even better, it’s easy enough for anyone to make. From sweet and salty maple-vanilla ham to a whole roasted ham with orange glaze, we have the best recipes your family and friends will love.

    In the Dominican Republic a typical menu is:

    Habichuelas con Dulce
    Roast pork, preferably cooked outside
    macaroni or potato salad
    empanadas

    Can anyone add more to the list?

    Having read a few replies and re-reading OP I guess the OP is asking what "typical Dominican main course"? If you are not Dominican why not make the main course something you like unless all of your guests will be Dominican.

    I don't buy into that thinking because you reside in a different country you should start to eat the local food. People from all over the world come to USA and continue to cook and eat what they enjoyed in their home country.

    I agree the ingredients may be hard to find but I am not about to switch up and make my tastes buds start to enjoy mofongo or modongo whatever it is called.
