The same basic recipe as last year:
2 to 2.5 pounds potatoes and 1 large yellow onion, grated together in the food processor
3-4 T Unbleached All Purpose Flour (or matzo meal)
1 T salt
4 large eggs
This year we fed 20 people with
12.5 pounds of potatoes
5 pound onions
2 pints of sourcream
10 cups of homemade applesauce (could have used a bit more of this)
We over-bought on the onions and eggs. We probably used about a pint of cooking oil on the big griddle.
Michael read some bloggers ahead of the holiday talking about pre-grating the potatoes and storing them covered in cold water. Intriguing, but not quite our work flow.
