Lefse From Hardanger / Hardangerlefse

A recipe from the Norwegian local paper Varden based in Skien in Telemark



traditional badge2I have just joined which is a net based data base for Norwegian recipes and I thought I might give you a little taste of what one might find there. And what better to start with than lefse which you can both see made and taste at the Folkemuseum in Oslo where the picture above was taken. If you have come across a lefse recipe earlier and find it different than the one presented here you got to remember that just about every valley and village in Norway has their own particular twist on the recipe. There are for instance both “Tynnlefse” and “Tjukklefse” thick and thin lefse – Ted
