Lefse: Step By Step
In our Nov/Dec 2010 issue, Rev. Kwen Sanderson shared his lefse-making technique with our readers. The Lutheran pastor has spent the last 20 years perfecting his lefse craft. Working with real potatoes can be problematic due to varying moisture content, so Sanderson recommends using potato flakes. To learn more about Rev. Sanderson and his lefse tips, read Rev. Sanderson's Lefse Ministry.
