RECIPE: Celebrate Hanukkah With Latkes

Hanukkah, the Jewish Festival Of Lights, begins at sundown today.

In addition to lighting the ceremonial candelabra, the menorah, there are favorite holiday foods.

Our personal favorite is the potato latke, or pancake, made from grated potatoes and onion, bound with eggs and fried.

You don’t have to be Jewish to love a latke (pronounced LOT-ka—the word is Yiddish, derived from the Belarusian latka).

Enjoy this latke recipe with white potatoes or sweet potatoes (our favorite).

They’re often served with a brisket of beef, but will complement just about anything.

Happy Hanukkah!

QUESTION: Do you spell the holiday Chanukah or Hanukkah?
A look at Google today showed that in the past month, 450,000 people searched for “Hanukkah”; only 110,000 searched for “Chanukah.” And 22,000 people searched for “latke,” with another 80,000 or so searching for “latke” plus another word—“latke recipe,” “Potato Latke,” etc.
