It’s All About the Lefse!

Uff-da, that looks good!

Making lefse seems straight forward, but it’s truly an art form. Many different and subtle twists to the basic potatoes, flour, butter and other lefse ingredients must be considered. Everyone adds their own little secret approach to making lefse. The world famous American food writer James Beard promoted a recipe with corn syrup, buttermilk, and cardamon. We like a lot of the lefse recipes, but the one we prefer the most is our Aunt Charlotte’s. Please view our favorite lefse recipe or purchase a sample of our homemade lefse!

Lefse plays an important role in Scandinavian tradition. During the holiday season no meal is complete without a plate of buttered lefse.
