No matter where your roots lie, eating a krofi just might taste like going home — or where you wish you’d grown up.

My family, which hails from the Iron Range, has krofe (KRO-fuh) every Easter. We get ours from the local bakery, and while I'm not sure if they use lemon, there is a tang that sets them apart from your average fried bread. The krofe we get are unsweetened, so they can be topped with anything from ham to preserves. They're so, so good. And now I want one.

It would have been nice if the article gave an address. I couldn't find a web site.

Also being an Slovenian Iron Ranger, my best friend and I have attempted Krofe a couple times at Easter. Even with long distance coaching from my mom they are pretty difficult to master! last year we just ordered unfilled bismarks from Kramarczuks's! They were delicious, and perfect with a slice of ham or rolled in sugar!
