Dec 19, 2003 — Tonight is the first night of the Jewish holiday Chanukah. We start celebrations a little early this year by cooking latkes, Chanukah's most typical food. NCPR's Ellen Rocco and Martha Foley make them live in the NCPR kitchen.
Potato Latke Recipe:
8 lg. potatoes (Idaho baking potatoes not recommended) 2 eggs 1 lg. onion 2 tsp. salt 2 T flour pepper to taste lots of cooking oil
Grate potatoes; mince onion (finely or coarsely, depending on preference). Add egg, salt, pepper, and flour. Drain mixture to remove water. Fry in hot oil until crisp on edges. Drain on paper towels or eat right away!
