Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Peel potatoes, apple, and onion.

  2. Put them through a meat grinder, if you have one. Alternatively, grate them in food prcessor or blender.

  3. Pour off some of the excess water from grated potatoes.

  4. Beat eggs lightly in medium bowl and add grated potato mixture, salt, and matzo meal or flour.

  5. Pour about 1" of oil in large skillet and heat until a few drops of water sizzle when they hit the oil.

  6. Drop the mixture by tablespoons into the hot oil.

  7. Brown latkes to golden color, then flip over and brown the other side.

  8. Immediately remove to double or triple layer of paper towels to drain. Serve hot, with apple sauce and sour cream'.

  9. If you can't serve at once, put in 190 deg. F oven. I put each batch in the oven as soon as they are drained, so that all are good and crisp. I also usually double or triple the recipe according to the number of people eating.
