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.
