Easter is probably the most revered holiday for most Ukrainian families. Many Housewives begin to prepare, pre-purchasing products and accessories to the Easter holidays. Alas, in recent years, when incomes of Ukrainians decreased, and the price of food constantly rising, it seems that to have a family feast becomes for ordinary people unaffordable luxury. Is it really so? Is it possible to lay a lavish Easter table, leaving huge amounts of money in supermarkets? For a review of prices for the most running products for Easter we went to the supermarket Velmart at Vishnyakovskaya str, 10, to understand how much it will cost this year for an ordinary Ukrainian family.
Purchases for Easter, usually occurred two to three a trip to the supermarket or to the market. Products that you can lie down, such as eggs, flour, oil, wine, sausage, and dye for Easter eggs you can buy in advance. But for fresh meat, fish and ready Easter products it is better to come directly before the holidays to buy everything fresh. Give preference to stores that offers a wide selection of meat and fresh fish. For example, in Walmart pleased us meat showcase, in which you can find a variety of meat products from minced meat and semi-finished products to the freshest clippings at prices that are very affordable. Pleased with the price of chicken thighs – 42,99 UAH. per kg.
Long admired fish delicacies – from bright fresh carcasses on the white ice until frozen. We had plans to fish pie, so we were looking for fresh frozen mackerel – as it turns profitable. Found quite cheaply – 53,99 UAH. per kg. was Glad of the action on the brisket and herring in vacuum package – this product may well lie before the holiday for a few weeks and not go bad.

We have several types of cakes to different customers. Baking and cheap cakes of unleavened dough with raisins that are affordable to every Ukrainian (from 8.60 UAH). Are elite: they cost more (59-220 UAH.) because they use expensive products, such as condensed milk, candied fruits, almond flakes. More likely to buy them in order to sanctify the Church. All the recipes we personally check the first bake test batch, create a tasting panel. Listen to experience, listen to the advice and do another “refinement”. And only if the product is like a strict Commission, launched into sale. To understand the quality of the finished Easter products is quite difficult, because they are baked in paper form and is coated with either glace icing or white fondant is a must to taste.
