At this special time of year, we at Kenes Tours extend our brightest wishes for a Happy Hanukkah. May the Festival of Lights bestow in each of us a renewed spirit of community and hope for a peaceful and prosperous year to come.

 

 Enjoy our recommended traditional Latkes recipe as you celebrate the spirit of the holiday!

Latkes recipe from Kenes 800x531 

Ingredients:

  • 5 large potatoes, peeled
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • ¾ cup oil for frying

Use: 10-inch skillet
Yields: 4 to 6 servings

 


Grate potatoes and onion on the fine side of a grater, or in a food processor; or put in a blender with a little water.

Strain grated potatoes and onion through a colander, pressing out excess water. Add eggs, flour, and seasoning. Mix well.
Heat ½ cup oil in skillet. Lower flame and place 1 large tablespoon batter at a time into hot sizzling oil and fry on one side for approximately 5 minutes until golden brown. Turn over and fry on other side 2 to 3 minutes.

Remove from pan and place on paper towels to drain excess oil. Continue with remaining batter until used up, adding more oil when necessary.

Serve with applesauce on the side.

Happy Hanukkah!
