I was talking to my butcher today who told me that lamb is a fairly recent favourite at Easter and that turkey used to be traditional (in England)
I spoke to my mum and she confirmed that her parents always used to have turkey then too, though she didn't realise it was a tradition.
I can't find much info on this online. I'd like to know. What are traditional accompaniments to an English Easter turkey.
I'd assume that they are sufficiently different to Thanksgiving and Christmas as there is more spring produce available.
My grandparents were from Hampshire and London and my Butcher is from Kent, so this was at least a south of England tradition, but I have not been able to find much about easter turkey from any region online.
Any links and references would be greatly appreciated as my Google-fu has failed me with this. I can find repurposed Christmas recipes but nothing specifically for Easter. For what it is worth, ham and goose used to be more popular with my grandparents than turkey at Christmas.
