One of the 55 ways of making a simple bread in Lapland, northern part of Finland. I am not aware if this is how Santa Claus makes bread, but I think his wife might...
Boil and drain potatoes, mash, adding some butter so they dont dry so fast. Mix in rye flour and stir thoroughly. Cover and let the mixture turn sweet. After 5 hours add bread starter and 1/2 of the other flours. Let the mixture ferment for another 4 -5 hours until it is bubbly. Mix in the rest of the flour, salt, seasoning and syrup. Let rise for 1 hour. Spray baking plates (30 x 40cm) with margarines and sprinkle some flour on top. Form balls from the dough and flatten into a large circle on the plate with floury hands. Prick the bread with a fork. Make up your own pattern - every baker has on in Lapland. Bake in a preheated 250 degree oven for 10 -12 minutes. wrap into a cloth and cool on a rack, or eat right away with egg butter and fresh tomatoes
