Einer Almgood stopped by a few days ago bringing, as he does each winter, leftover lutefisk.
Einer buys only dry lutefisk, not trusting anyone else to do the washing, soaking, lye treatment and whatever else goes into the rehydration process. This ordeal keeps him occupied for about three weeks. It also swells his four pound chunk of dried cod into a mass the size of a seat cushion.
This is one reason he always has leftover lutefisk. Another is that no one in his family will touch it.
