    History of Lefse

    I'm not certain of the accuracy of this tale but it is certainly entertaining should you have any Norse blood in you. My apologies to Sweden, of course. I know it's a lot of words to read at one time!


    Now Den, vot you know bout dat….
    Did you know that lefsa was invented by the norweigen Vikings…
    Von day, dey vent and was going to raid Ireland…..
    Vell they got over der, but they couldn’t suprise dem
    Irish people cause they were making too much noise coming across
    the Nort Sea from Norway.
    When they got to the shores of Ireland, they tried to land
    But couldn’t. You see the Irish heard them coming and began
    throwing their potatoes at
    them darn vikings so dat the cud not land. Vel by golly,
    do you know vat. They load that ship with all the potatoes
    dat got trowed at dem, pulled out their oars and finally got back
    to Norway. When they got there they played aroung with those
    potatoes and came up with a bread, and called it LEFSA.
    They had a big party that night, day got out that old foul smelling
    fish and put it on Lefsa and that is where the Lutefisk Supper vas
    born………..My Grate, Grate, Grate, Grate, Granfodder was on that
    ship that raided Ireland.
    I’m sure glad they brought it to America other wise we would not have
    Lutefisk Suppers Today.
