There are many stories about why we eat latkes (potato pancakes) on Hanukkah, but the most modern one is that the oil used to fry the latkes represents that the oil lasted eight (8) days when there was only one (1) day of oil left in the temple.  It was a miracle!




           (Potato Pancakes)

6 large potatoes, peeled
1 large onion
4 eggs
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 heaping Tbsp. flour
pinch of baking powder
Grate potatoes and onion. Drain off all liquid from mixture using a sieve,
or place the mixture in a dish towel and squeeze. Add beaten eggs and seasonings
and shape into patties. Heat oil in a skillet and fry the patties on both sides until browned.
Produces about 18 pancakes.
Modern Method:
Place potatoes and onions in your food processor using the grater blade.
Drain off all liquid from mixture (as above) and place in bowl.
Add eggs and seasonings, flour and baking powder. Fry as above.
Serve with applesauce and sour cream.
