I dont really have a recipe. I pour boiling water over it so it is covered. When that cools down a bit I pour off the water and repeat. It is usually four times before the cod is done and the salt mostly gone. The fish is firm and quite flavourful. It is also good in fish chowder.

A poem by my departed uncle.

"Lutefisk, lutefisk, how fragrant thy aroma.
Lutefisk, lutefisk, you put me in a coma."

Great thread. I remember seeing Lutefisk at the smorgasboards in the basement of our Lutheran church as a child. I don't remember ever eating it. I guess if I had eaten it I would remember, wouldn't I? At Christmas, my Mom would put out huge platters of Lefse, krumkake, sandbakkels and rosettes. We'd also have a big pot of rumagrot.

Does anyone else remeber having blod klub? Yet another Norwegian food based on a dare. Three ingredients: blood, flour and side pork. Mixed together and formed into balls and boiled. We would slice it thick and fry in butter. Unlike Lutefisk, it was fantastic. My old friends still talk about my Mom making it.

You make me think of what I have read as "Lutheran Church basement coffee". Coffee with an egg, or eggs mixed with the grounds.

As I read all of the different foods listed the taste and smells come back to me and the warmth and love of my family and youth.
Thank you all for bringing these memories back.

Being the grandson of 2 first generation and 1 second generation Norwegian immigrants anytime we got together there was a lot of Lefse, Kumla, Shustabaca(sp?) and at Christmas time we made Krumkaka, sandbackles, rosettes, and a few others I don't remember the names of.

We live in an area in Wisconsin with a lot of Amish. This is one of the brands of cookstoves that they use. This is a "Kitchen Queen". It is the smaller of the two sizes. You can also get them with warming ovens and water jackets for hot water. We didn't get the water jacket as we get our hot water out of the tap. Tricky to bake with. Getting the right amount of wood and draft. We don't cook on it much but it heats the whole house for us in the winter.

I remember blood klub. When I was a little kids my grandma would send my uptown to the butcher shop for blood. They would send it home with me in a little cardboard box with a wire handle. Funny how little things from the past stick in your mind. I'm 68 now.

Thanks Rod. I recall my great grandma cooking on a wood stove.

I am finally getting the tears wiped away enough to type. This thread is hilarious! laugh

I have never "experienced" lutefisk, and, by the sound of it, not likely ever will. My wife runs out of the room when I open a can of smoked oysters! I guess what turns one person on doesn't necessarily work for another....

I remember a friend and his wife discussing lutefisk. I don't think she would have allowed him in the house if he would have brought any home. He claimed he liked it.

To the tune of "O Tannenbaum"

"O Lutefisk, O Lutefisk, how fragrant is your aroma,
O Lutefisk, O Lutefisk, you put me in a coma.
You smell so strong, you look like glue
You taste yust like an overshoe;
But Lutefisk, come Saturday, I tink I'll eat you anyway.

O Lutefisk, O Lutefisk, I put you by the doorway;
I vanted you to ripen like dey do in Norway,
A dog came by and sprinkled you; I hit him with my army shoe,
O Lutefisk, now I suppose ... I'll eat you as I hold my nose.

O Lutefisk, O Lutefisk, how well I do remember
On Christmas Eve, how we'd receive our big treat of December,
It vasn't turkey or fried ham; it vasn't even pickled spam;
My mudder knew dere vas no risk in serving buttered Lutefisk.

O Lutefisk, O Lutefisk, now everyone discovers
Dot Lutefisk and lefse make Norvegians better lovers,
Now all da vorld can have a ball; you're better than dat Geritol,
O Lutefisk, Vid Brennevin, You make me feel like Errol Flynn.

I had always thought it was my uncle's original, but maybe he heard the "Ode" somewhere. I will ask next time I visit the cemetery.

A local store specializing in Scandanavian goods had Lutefisk. I asked them about it once and the worker to whom I inquired, cringed. She said "are you going to buy it? I said I might, I just wanted to see/smell to know. She didn't want to got othe basement to get it if I didn't have plans to buy some. we had a good laugh and I saved her the trouble, based on the look on her face.

If there's a list of the 10 most disgusting things that people consider food, lutefisk would surely rank way up there, along with those grubs and caterpillars that are commonly eaten raw in Africa, and let's not forget limburger cheese.

I have a rule: "If it smells like sh-t, don't eat it."

Funny thread. I've just re-read the whole thing. Not to do with lutefisk, but I remember my old Dad bringing home some blue cheese and trying to get Mom and my sister and I to eat some. It stunk so bad that we made him keep it in a jar in the fridge.

Indeed there are lots of lutefisk jokes, but I can only think of one right now.

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