Happy Hanukkah

I'm ready for my favorite - Latkes
  • 1 lb potatoes
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup olive oil
  • Peel potatoes, grate and put in cold water. Soak a couple minutes and drain well.
  • Place potatoes and finely grated (key) onion on tea towel, roll as you would a jelly roll, and wring tightly.
  • Mix together with egg and salt.
  • Heat skillet to medium high. If the oil starts smoking cook it down first.
  • Use about 4 TBS or so in a small skillet and place about 1/8 of a cup of mixture into pan spreading out into roughly a 3" disk.
  • My mother always had a special fork she used to flatten them out.
  • Cook about 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  • Drain on tea towel or paper towels then transfer to a cookie cooling rack set in a jellyroll pan or cake pan in a low temperature oven.
  • This method of allowing air to move under them will keep them crisp!
  • Add more oil as needed, allow to heat back up to prevent soggy latkes and repeat cooking process.
  • Keep everyone out of the kitchen or there won't be ANY to sit down to!!!
  • Serve with sour cream and applesauce.

Goboenomo, no, we do not celebrate Hannukah (I always get very confused about the spelling).

But wishing a person who does, I believe, goes beyond respect.

I think it is an acknowlegement that we are all just folks, that we share the same feelings, the same desires, sadly, the same problems, and that we are all in this communal gemish we call life together.

These eight days are, in my limited understanding of Jewish tradition, a family time, a time of joy.

And so I wish you and your family, and indeed all DC folks who celebrate Hannukah, a happy and peaceful time.

God bless and take care.
