FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. - A woman walked up to the Jacobs Lefse Bakeri booth at the Minnesota State Fair with a simple question: "How do you get it not to stick?"


Jack Jacobs, who has heard that question thousands of times, was happy to give her the secret: "You are always rolling in flour."

The key to avoiding the woman's sticky rolling pin situation is to sprinkle flour on lefse dough before rolling it and again about half-way through, Jacobs explained.
