Who Doesn’t Love LatkesPosted by Stacy
I like to make them fresh so they are nice and crisp. I have not found one good latke recipe that can be made ahead so they are not soggy.
Latkes are traditional fare for Hanukkah, the eight-day Jewish Festival of Lights that begins at sundown Dec. 11.

I like to serve them as I make them.
This is the recipe I usually use. I found it in a cookbook I purchased as part of a fundraiser for my synagogue. You know what I am talking about. The type of cookbook where they ask you to submit your favorite recipes. I find they are the easiest and most reliable.
