November 16, 2010 The upcoming holidays, for many, is a time of preparing special, time-honored recipes. Many are family traditions to be passed down from generation to generation. This is one of those dishes that the Sylvester family, of Minnesota, does year after year: making lefse. What is a lefse? Simply put, it’s a “traditional soft Norwegian flatbread”. It’s made from potatoes, flour, butter, salt and sugar. Simple ingredients, yet an experienced hand might be handy to have nearby!
For those who would like to see them being made, here is a video of a woman who has been making them for 25 years. She offers her recipe and instructions, too.
