Personal Notes:
Selma Anderson, (AKA Aunt Sally) was the youngest child of Peter and Dora (Unzelman)Warns. She made this one Thanksgiving at their house in the country near Wentworth SD. It was strange to smell fish instead of Turkey, but I remember that it tasted terrific! This recipe is courtesy of her son, Claire Anderson who really likes Lutafisk!
