MY NORWEGIAN CHRISTMAS
My family and heritage community
When I first married my husband I had never heard of lefse or lutefisk. I tried both, but I was not a fan of the lutefisk. But, I loved that that the entire family loved this tradition! My husband's 100 year old grandmother would share how the recipes for both dishes have changed through out time. She would also share stories on how her parents would make this meal in early 1900's and during the depression. Every year since my husband's grandma married she was in charge of the traditional Christmas meal of lefse, lutefisk, and other Norwegian treats (krumkake, kringla) and sharing of stories from the past.
Soft flatbread. Really yummy when buttered and covered in sugar and cinnamon!
Boiled fish. Usually stored in lye.
A decorated waffle cookie! Yum!
