Carolyn's Latkes

Carolyn's Latkes

Here is my recipe. I am only Jewish by osmosis, but I make great latkes.

3 lbs potatoes --russets, peeled
1 large onion, peeled and grated
2 eggs beaten
1/4 cup matzoh meal
salt and pepper to taste
oil for frying (I like a mixture of olive and canola)

Scrub potatoes, then grate using a metal grater. Put grated potatoes and onion into colander, over a large bowl. Let sit a few minutes then squeeze, squeeze, squeeze all of the moisture out of them. Wait a few minutes more, then repeat the squeezing process. Add eggs, matzoh meal, and salt and pepper. Let sit for a few more minutes.

In a large heavy skillet, pour in 1/4 inch oil. Get oil very hot (about 350°), and using a long serving spoon, drop latkes batter into the skillet. Flatten each with a spatula. Don't worry if latkes are not perfect. Reduce heat to medium, cook until golden brown on one side. Do not mess with them too much when they are frying or they will fall apart. Flip, and then cook for a few more minutes until golden. Serve with applesauce.
