Carrots are also an Easter classic that should not be reserved just for the bunnies. Carrot cake jam is a fun twist on the typical sweet dessert. Sweetened with crushed pineapple and spices, this jam tastes just like a slice of carrot cake. Perfect when spread on a scone or bread, or even wrapped and gifted inside an Easter basket.

Easy Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Jam
Ham is a common staple for the dinner table on Easter, and the salty meat pairs perfectly with a sweet condiment. This year, instead of serving fruit itself, make your own pineapple upside-down cake jam. The combination of pineapples and cherries is delicious when used as a glaze or simple side.

Stepping outside of the kitchen, if you’re feely crafty and want to depart from the typical wicker Easter basket, try swapping for Easter jars. These DIY speckled quart jars look just like duck eggs and make the perfect container for marshmallow bunnies, chocolate eggs, and other candy favorites.
