At Potsdam's Beth El Synagogue the public is invited in, too -- just before Chanukah -- for the annual food festival. This year's festival is Sunday, Dec. 14. Before you get in the door you'll smell the latkes or potato pancakes frying in oil, and the matzo ball soup. Another staple of the event is the blintz... Martha Foley has today's Heard Up North.

Celebrate Chanukah With NCPR Latkes

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!  Go to full article
