I was able to eat a ton of latkas last week after one of my charge's mothers made a bunch for the kindergarten class. Yum yum. This was my first year taking part in celebrations for Chanukah. The kids and I played a lot of dreidel with some Belgian chocolate gelt. I gotta say, I like any holiday with a focus on food, family, and games.

Happy Chanukah, everyone!

I got to celebrate Hanukkah once with my ex and his family. I think we ended up having 9 or 10 days, though. His grandpa was a bit senile and just wouldn't stop lighting candles.

And, of course, the food was AMAZING.

Happy Hanukkah!

mmmmmm latkes. I will have to try to make them next year. This year I read to the kids about Chanukah and then we lit the menorah. Both of them were fascinated by it. I decided from now on I will teach them about both Chanukah and Christmas.

Happy Chanukah everyone!

Pure deliciousness in the form of a potato pancake, grated and mixed with a bit of grated onion, with egg as a binder. You then dress them up with sour cream or applesauce, or other things, depending on your taste.

Man, now I'm hungry.

If they look too much like hash browns, just grate the potato to a finer texture. Otherwise, egg is the diff.

Oh, those are some great looking latkes!

I was also fortunate enough to eat many over the last few days ...seems like many is never enough. My Jewish father-in-law made these latest ones and they were also excellent. But I learned how to make great ones from my mom, so these are a Hungarian Catholic version ...I modified an old family recipe for krumpli palacinta ...potato crepes, which allows me to make them thicker and smaller rather than a large thin crepe.

Yeah, I edited out the onion. I've never seen 'em that way. But basically, the raw potatoes are glued together with the egg and then fried up in small pancakes. Sorta similar but different.

I make them year round, they are very easy to make. And if you want to be lazy sometimes you can use a blender or food processor just do not liquify them. Basically 5 potatoes, 1 egg, 1 onion, salt, black pepper. Some people put in a drop of flour to keep it together, but that is more of an old Hungarian thing, when they had a lot of flour and less potatoes so they added it to make it more filling. Still a tad of flour if you use like 2 eggs for 8 potatoes help keep the latka together (I almost never use flour).

Personally I fry it in 2 different fryers, one with a larger flame then the other. Put it in the one with the larger flame, flip in to the one with the smaller, so it is crispy but not burnt.
