Traditional Easter Dinner in Vancouver

For many people in Vancouver Easter means enjoying a traditional Easter dinner.

 Traditional Easter Dinner

Go out for dinner. Several high-end Vancouver restaurants like the Wedgewood Hotel, Sutton Place Hotel and the Pan Pacific Hotel offer lavish meals for the holiday.

Or prepare dinner at home.

The best Easter dinner recipes are ones that are quick and simple.

When it comes to the main event a traditional Easter favourite is ham.

Here is an easy recipe for glazed ham top with a pineapple and Dijon mustard sauce.

It takes about half an hour to prepare your dinner and two-and-a-half hours in the oven

You'll need:

  • 1 cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup of maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup of Dijon mustard
  • 1 whole fully cooked ham
  • Cloves
  • 12 maraschino cherries halved
  • 1 tablespoon of cornstarch
  • 1 can crushed pineapple in the juice

Steps to follow

  1. Set your oven to 350°F.
  2. Blend your sugar, syrup and mustard and put them aside
  3. Take a sharp knife and make deep parallel cuts in the ham and then
  4. Make more cuts at right angles to make a diamond pattern
  5. Arrange the cherries with the cut sides down.
  6. Put the ham in a shallow baking pan and bake for two hours or until it reaches 140°F (test with a meat thermometer after 1-1/2 hours)
  7. Brush 1/2 cup of the syrup mixtures over top
  8. Mix the rest of the syrup mixture with the cornstarch and the pineapple with the liquid that is in the pan and cook until it thickens and comes to a boil

Scalloped potatoes, honey glazed carrots and a spinach salad will make the meal complete.

Bon Appetite!
