Frequently Asked Questions
HOW SHOULD I THAW THE LEFSE?
Take lefse out of the freezer and completely thaw at room temperature before serving. Do not thaw out in refrigerator.
IS THE LEFSE SHIPPED FROZEN AND WHAT SHOULD I DO WITH IT WHEN IT ARRIVES?
Our lefse is shipped frozen. If you are not going to eat it for more than three days, please put in freezer. Even if the lefse is partially thawed out, it can be refrozen. If the lefse is going to be eaten in a day or so, put in the refrigerator, but please make sure the lefse is completely thawed out before refrigeration. Lefse thawed out in the refrigerator tends to stick together.

Lefse will last in the freezer for several months.

All lefse shipped in December will be sent using UPS.
In most cases, lefse will be shipped using Priority Mail (Mon, Tues or Wed) because that is more economical. However, during the holiday season, we will choose the shipping method that will ensure your lefse arrives in a timely manner since it is very perishable. For those orders in Zone 3, this means sending it UPS 3-day select, which is more expensive than priority mail but UPS provides guaranteed delivery during the busy holiday season. Please call us and we can quote you a price for UPS shipping.
Lefse will be shipped priority mail, unless really close to Christmas, then it will need to go priority mail Express or UPS 2nd-day air.
Because of our remote location, Overnight delivery service is not an option.
Shipping to warmer climates:
Granrud’s ships lefse frozen year-round, however, we ask our customers to be discretionary in shipping lefse to warmer climates, especially during the hot summer months. When shipping lefse to warmer areas, please select an address where someone will be there to receive the package (place of business, if you work). If no one is available, UPS carriers have the discretion to leave the lefse on your doorstop. Granrud’s reserves the right to ship lefse 2nd day air, at an additional charge, if we find it necessary due to the warm weather. Granrud’s is not responsible for loss of lefse shipped during hot periods.
