HAMTRAMCK, Mich. (WJBK) -

If you enjoy Polish food, you know about Srodeks. The Hamtramck market is know for its sausage, pierogies and other tasty treats, but every Easter, one of their best-sellers is the butter lamb.

"The butter lamb signifies the resurrection of Christ," says Maggie Srodek, a part of the third generation of Srodeks working at the family store.

The lambs are made by bringing real butter to room temperature and placing it in a two-piece mold. The butter is then put in the freezer overnight and finished off with a red ribbon and two black peppercorns for eyes.

Srodek says every year, they produce 50,000-60,000 butter lambs.
