Ya tdawnaz and others, it's nasty and pronounced 'Lute-fisk' if Swedish-American and as 'Lute-a-fish' if Norwegian-American. It's not eaten in the 'old country' anymore, they've got better sense..heehee!.Lefse is lovely though :smiley: Lefse's made from mashed potatoes and enough flour to make a roll-out-able dough. Quite a mess to make as one's entire kitchen is dusted with flour by the end. The lute fisk (or lutefisk) is dried cod..that takes days of soaking in various solutions...winding up as smelly fish jell-o. But with enough melted button it, can nearly stand it. But my New Year's Resolution is never, ever to try it again. Both are Christmas traditions but our house-hold did a more traditional meal for that and lutefish 'n' lefse among other 'sides' for New Years.  [nerdly]

(Joke, though actually fairly believable)...

"Well, we tried the lutefisk trick and the raccoons went away, but now we've got a family of Norwegians living under our house!"

We loved "Swedish Pancakes" and they may be called 'plattar'. Are they a thin egg batter and cooked crepe-like? I like them with butter and a piece of fried bacon rolled inside....other's go for the lingonberry sauce. American-Scandinavians do cross-cultural on some of the better good eats. Lutefish isn't one of the things that others will adopt willingly... :2funny:

I'm kidding only a bit when I say "I was raised by a pack of wild Norwegians''

And ja, lefse's Norwegian: (quote)

"lefse (lef-suh) - Lefse is considered to any "good" Norwegian the same as the tortilla is to the Mexican and the crepes are to the French. A Scandinavian tradition for decades, lefse is a pastry made from potatoes, flour, butter, and cream. It is widely prized as a delicious delicacy, whether served plain or with butter and sugar." (Ugh, sugar on lefse)

Kind of a stiff-necked bunch of comedians, hee! But they sure can party :buck2:

I've a couple chat friends from Sweden who're kind enough to share a few words with me. Generally, the Swedes know English quite well. But it's fun to pick up a few words.
