How To Make a Butter Lamb for Easter

Take a look at this butter lamb, sent to us by reader Ron. A butter lamb on the Easter table is an old Polish Catholic tradition. Usually people make a butter lamb using a mold, but Ron says that this is the older, more traditional way to do it — no mold required.

Ron says he wants to keep the old traditions alive, and to inspire people to start a new (to them) tradition of trying a butter lamb for Easter. He also has an entire spread of traditional Polish Easter recipes!
