Bag of PotatoesThis story is from David Mann, submitted as part of our Wisdom From Our Elders collection of self-sufficient tales from yesteryear. 

My grandfather came to Minnesota from Sweden around 1900 and eventually owned a farm near Milaca. Before World War II, my time on the farm was a magical memory of vegetable gardens, farm animals, walleye pike, and Swedish potatiskorv, or potato sausage. The sausage was mixed in a 6-gallon crock, stuffed by hand, and cooked on a woodstove.

WAY too salty. Next time I make this I'm going to cut the salt in half.
