Each spring, Passover arrives on the cusp of spring. Winter's chill has faded, the days are longer and warmer, and hopeful green buds have started to appear on tree branches. It is the perfect time to celebrate a holiday focused on freedom. Passover, after all, commemorates the Israelites’ Exodus from ancient Egypt, and their transition from a life of slavery to one of freedom.
In addition to retelling the Exodus story, and meditating on freedom in all its forms, food — and particularly sharing meals with family and friends — makes up a significant portion of the holiday. Do you celebrate Passover? Whether you're getting ready for the holiday or just want to learn a little more about it, here are some of Passover's most delicious edible traditions.
