Easter Camping Traditions

Does your Easter camping tradition include certain foods?

I seem to remember pickled eggs on our Easter camping trips.  My mother made pickled eggs with whole beets and the juice; a recipe from Dad's Pennsylvania Dutch roots.  The beet juice turned the eggs a pretty pink.  The longer they pickled, the deeper the color penetrated and eventually colored the yolk.  The hardest part was waiting 3 days before we could taste one.

Mom used to pack them tight into the jar which left a large, light-colored, spot on the eggs where they touched each other and the jar.  They looked like colored Easter eggs.

Sometimes we change traditions, slightly, to add our own flavor.  My husband added pepperoncinis to add a little spice our pickled eggs.

What are some of your favorite Easter camping foods and traditions?
