Hanukkah Latkes ~ A Walk on The Wild Side

Food traditions play an important role in any holiday celebration and Hanukhah, the Festival of Lights, is no exception. Little potato pancakes fried in oil are served as the menorah candles glow brightly and gifts are opened.  As the Hanukkah dreidel game reminds, a great miracle happened there. Oil that was suppose to last only one day burned for eight. To remember the miracle of the oil latkes are traditionally fried.

The classic Hanukkah Latkes are made from potatoes. Fying in oil gives them a nice, satisfying crunch. Sour cream or apple sauce tops off this holiday dish. Traditional Latke Recipe – Tori Avey
