I am going to give this recipe a try! My husband and I make lefse each year. We make a couple of batches using his mom's recipe (with potatoes) and a couple of batches from my grandma's recipe.

My grandma's recipe doesn't include potatoes; instead it consists of flour, lard, sugar, salt, and boiling water. I don't know why or how lard came to be used...someone told me that lard lefse held up better when using it to hold lutefisk and mashed potatoes. Someone else mentioned that maybe lard was used if there weren't potatoes or not enough money for potatoes. My grandma isn't around anymore to ask, and no one in my family knows the reason. I would love to know if any of your readers have heard of lefse made with lard.
