'Holy Lefse Rollers' at Immanuel Lutheran are at it again
Each year in October, lefse making begins at Immanuel Lutheran Church located at 1036 E. Lincoln St. in Woodburn.
Making lefse is genuinely an art form requiring dough to be rolled super thin and then cooked on a special griddle. The essential ingredients are potatoes, flour, cream, butter, a little sugar and salt.
Lefse plays an important role in Scandinavian tradition. No meal is complete during the holidays without a plate of buttered lefse.
Selling lefse is a tradition at Immanuel Lutheran. This year, lefse will be sold on Saturday, Nov. 9, from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m. for $8 per package. There is a limit to six packages per person with no presales. Enjoy a homemade cinnamon roll, orange juice and endless coffee for $5 after you purchase your lefse.
Take home some baked pies, cakes, cookies or cinnamon rolls to enjoy later too. Proceeds for this year's lefse sales will benefit Little Lambs Preschool and the Wednesday Night Community dinner.
Volunteers are always welcome to become "Holy Lefse Rollers" at Immanuel. Call Shelly at 503-981-1036.
