well, since it was originally written in hebrew, i also doubt there was a "c" in it.
So what <I>is</I> the correct way of spelling in English the Hebrew name of the ‘Festival of Lights’?

I really don't care as long as I get my latkes and my jelly donuts!

This year I'm frying the latkes in duck fat. It couldn't hurt....

Oooooh, latkes in duck fat. Sounds so yummy. Do you put sour cream or preserves on them, too?

Happy Chanuka to all and thanks to everyone for the well wishes.

I have been taught that there are numerous ways to correctly spell the name of the holiday. Some have a C and others do not. One is not more correct over the others.

What I would like to do if you would help. This Friday I am going to daughter's and would like to make some of the food that would be made in Jewish households during this time of celebrating. If someone would give me suggestions I would much appreciate it. Thanks

David, I do not know the correct spelling, but there is something called Suf Ganyote. they are like little jelly filled doughnut balls. My Israeli friends introduced them to me. They are very popular during Chanuka as they are fried in oil.

Terry, I actually like homemade applesauce best on them... Creme Fraiche is also good.

hmmmm just wondering about mango chutney. I have some on hand.

David, I know I don't have my Latke recipe in this computer. I'll try to remember to post it when I get home.

The other "biggie" is jelly donuts (Sufganiyot) but most people buy them at the donut shop. They're quite the mess to make.
