Blessing of the Pascha baskets - I can't wait to see all our baskets!

How to make a Pascha Basket We'll be getting our Pascha baskets ready to bless and share after services Pascha Sunday. Although there are specific traditional foods, each family in our parish has their own favorites. With my family's German and Irish backgrounds, I include sauerbraten meatballs, German potato salad, pickled eggs, German sugar cookies and my homemade Bailey's Irish Cream!

We use onion skins to dye our eggs for Fesach. I had not known to make the dye first, so I will try that this year. I usually dye them with the skins in the pot. These look better. We do blood red eggs for the blood of Christ. No pastels here.
