Potato Latkes for Hanukkah

Been trying to remove this reblog but can’t find a way.

Cooking With Vinny

Hanukkah begins tonight and the shirt I wore 11 days ago to Ilene and Judi’s Latke Party still smells of oil and onion. My good friends have an annual potato latke party and invite everyone they know.  They start frying the traditional Hanukkah delicacy at 6:00 and don’t stop until 10:00 or the potatoes run out.

Ilene bases her recipe on one that has been handed down from her grandmother and mother. I say, “bases” as she takes liberties. Making latkes is like most things you do in the kitchen, it’s a matter of taste and your own flare.  That’s why the recipe following the video is my own variation, not Ilene’s grandmother’s recipe. And yes, my camera also smells like oil and onion.

THE RECIPE

  • 2 pounds potatoes grated
    I use russet potatoes bigger and easier to peel.
  • 1 Medium onion grated
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
