Latkes…a little late for Hanukkah

21 Dec

I know I am a little late for Hanukkah…well let’s be honest a lot late…but I finally had time to prepare potato latkes. Might I add, this is my very first time making latkes. I am happy to report that this endeavor was a thorough success. See for yourself…


Along the way I found out that unlike myself, most people use a meat grinder to shred potatoes for latkes. I on the other hand…did it all manually…with a regular grater…yep, pretty proud of myself. Although, I think it’s time to look into a food processor. Any suggestions for a food processor would be welcome!

Now let’s get to the task at hand, the recipe. I recently acquired an iphone (very cool toy). With this acquisition I discovered the world of recipe apps. At this point I have about 3 or 4 recipe apps, and mind you, I’ve only had the phone for a couple of weeks.

The recipe for these latkes came from the Epicurious app. This recipe can also be found on the original website. The recipe for these delicious latkes can be found here. I will avoid rewriting it as I didn’t divert from the original.

Here is one more look at these delicious puppies…


Hope you take the time to try out these latkes (they are worth it).

Happy Holidays!
