Lefse is a Norwegian flat bread traditionally made from potatoes, butter, cream and flour. In my family, it was the non-Norwegians, my grandmother and mother, who made it in our family. After years of turning lefse on the grill I dove in to make it myself after asking my mom to make some one year and she said, “Make it yourself.”
If you want to learn the art of making lefse, call the Pondera Extension office at 271-4054 to sign up for a lefse making class on Nov. 12 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Pondera Center in Conrad.
You will learn how to make lefse from potato flakes and real potatoes, correctly mixing in the flour for the proper consistency, rolling out the dough, cooking, cooling and storing your lefse. Best of all, we’ll be sampling our lefse!
