    1. Wring out grated potato to remove as much water as possible by scooping about 1/4 cup of potato into your hand; squeeze firmly.

    2. Place potato flesh in medium size bowl.

    3. Add remaining ingredients to grated potato; mix until well blended.

    4. Heat oil in a large, heavy skillet until it is almost smoking.

    5. Pat 2 tablespoons of grated potato mixture into a flat disk about 2-inches in diameter.

    6. Repeat, leaving about 1 inch between pancakes.

    7. Cook until bottom is browned and beginning to char, about 2 minutes.

    8. Turn; cook until second side begins to char, about 2 minutes.

    9. Remove to warm plate.

    10. Repeat with remaining grated potato mixture.

    11. Serve hot or warm, accompanied by apple sauce.

    12. Adapted from Alan Harding, Nosmo King, New York Potato pancakes with a horseradish punch are great way to work spring into your menu.

    13. Fans of the tear-inducing fumes that rise from freshly grated horseradish can tell you how they clear your head.

    14. What a culinary way to drive out wintery thoughts as we move into the new season! Fresh horseradish is rich in vitamin C and volatile oils.

    15. These oils are the cause of its pungent bite.

    16. This bite gives an interesting flavor-lift to potato pancakes.

    17. Alan Harding, chef at Nosmo King restaurant in New York, is serving spring latkes, or pancakes, made from a blend of grated celery root, potato, horseradish and onion.

    18. Since both celery root and horseradish are bitter, I find that using 1 or the other makes pancakes with more balanced flavor.

    19. Also, their texture is more velvety.

    20. Harding serves his crunchy, fried latkes on top of a crisp green salad.

    21. It's a nice change from croutons.

    22. They also make a zesty accompaniment to roast leg of spring lamb or roast beef.
