Regarding LEFSE: I am 100% Norwegian and grew up on lefse. In the midwest it was made by sweet little ladies who packaged it at home and sold it by word of mouth or in smaller markets. Several members of my family could make it and I fortunately have a very good recipe from a cousin. It takes practice and patience but it is well worth the effort. Add the shortening and butter to the potatoes FIRST. You do not want to add too much flour, barely 11/2 cups total, so I usually add about half that and use the rest to roll it out as that is the most difficult part. Work into a smooth dough and divide into balls about golfball size. (This depends on the size of lefse you want.) Keep the balls in the refrigerator while rolling dough because it rolls better if cool. Cool the balls for at least an hour before you start rolling them. The rolling is the tough part. As I said, keep the dough cool, flour the board well and roll the balls out as thin as you can. You need to be fast . Some people use a floured cloth on which to roll. You can buy long wooden paddles to transer the "crepe" to a griddle. At any rate,transfer the "crepe" to a hot griddle--teflon helps. Cook at about 425 until it begins to bubble, turn and cook until it bubbles up from the griddle.Remove and let cool. It really takes a lot of practice to make lefse. It ends up to look a lot like a tortilla but that is where the likeness stops. Lefse is used much like bread. It is buttered and rolled up and eaten with the meal. Another way is to put butter and mayonnaise on it, roll it around meat and eat it like a burrito. Good luck!
