An utterly simple and delicious way to celebrate the season's first new potatoes. Invented in the 1800s by Irish salt mine workers in central New York State, tender potatoes are boiled in intensely salted water, then served hot with melted butter.
We love the name, the taste and that everything goes into the blender. Lots of ingredients, like tomato soup, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar. Some make it hot, others make it sweet. The end result is a dressing that you 'll love to keep on hand and toss with your favorite salad.
Just flour, yeast, sugar, salt and water in the right proportions make this basic bread a winner. The recipe makes three loaves, so you can freeze what you cannot use or give them away to your friends.
I was raised on Lefse as a special treat for the holidays. We still make it every holiday season, and this is the best recipe ever. We eat ours with butter and sugar. Note: you will need a potato ricer to prepare this recipe.
There's a nice tangy bite to this hearty dark rye that still has a tender crumb, thanks to the wheat flour. Cocoa and coffee powders darken the loaf, and caraway and fennel seeds impart just a bit of licorice flavor. It can be made in your bread machine or with a stand mixer.
