Potato pancakes have strong European origins; but latkes (which are similar in make and ingredients) are a food tradition for the Ashkenzi Jews.  Latkes are one of the most popular foods of Hanukkah.  The significance of Latkes is based on the Hannukah celebration which pays tribute to oil. This delicious potato dish is part of the perfect meal during the Festival of Lights.

Ingredients

2 cups peeled and shredded potatoes

1 tablespoon grated onion

3 eggs, beaten

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1/2 cup peanut oil for frying

Directions

Extract the water and moisture from the potatoes by putting the,m in a cheesecloth and then wringing them dry.

Put the potatoes in a bowl and mix in the eggs, flour and onion.  Season with salt.

Heat the oil in a large skillet.  Scoop spoonfuls of the potato mixture into the hot oil, forming small cakes or patties that are about ¼ to ½ inch thick.  Fry on both sides until golden brown.  Best served when hot.
