    You never had the opportunity to eat in either of my grandparents homes then did you?

    I actually had alot of it when growing up.
    Smell is horrendous when cooking but it isn't half bad.
    I like it wrapped in lefse and some butter on the side for dipping.

    Used to have the same every Christmas eve growing up as well.
    Lutefisk and meatballs.
    The lutefisk did smell horrendous when cooking, but the taste wasn't so bad (or good).
    Mostly the butter is what made it palatable.
    My dad would eat it by the pounds, the rest of us just kind of poked at it and went for the meatballs.

    I have never understood why someone would eat something that smells so bad and is dipped in lye.
    Not to brag, but myself, Bob Claflin (a chiropractor) and Charles Edwards, a professional photographer in Madison, MN actually started the Lutefisk festival there. And even though I'm not the biggest Lutefisk fan in the world, I have eaten it.
    A bit about "Lutefisk Days..."
    I noticed in the Madison newspaper files from years back that that town ate the most Lutefisk per capita than any other town in the US. So that was the beginning of the festival.
    Our first "Lutefisk Days" had Boone and Erickson from WCCO radio as the emcees. We had a "Ms. Lutefisk" contest and the rules were you had to weigh at least 200 pounds and wear a swimsuit to be eligible. Belive it or not, we had about 6 entries. Ivy Vonderharr, a school teacher won the first Ms. Lutefisk award. We also had a tobacco spitting contest, a parade, and several other events besides the Lutefisk feed. It was an all day event.

    Re: Little Known Facts About MN

    Pelican Rapids is home to a 16-foot-tall concrete pelican, which subsists on a diet of 4-foot-long concret e fish.

    I grew up fishing off the platform that pelican sits on. I don't know anything about any concrete fish. But I have eaten lutefisk. There is no describing it other than to say it is a right of passage for Norskies not unlike a sweat lodge ritual or human sacrifices of old.

    I grew up in the home of a Custom Bucther in Northen MN and now live in the South.
    I have had "Chitlens" in many different ways (thats how they pronounce it here in VA) my friend.

    By the way, I just whooped up a big batch of venison sausage which I stuffed using natural hog casings......
