Latkes 2010

Michael frying Latkes

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

20 eggs

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.
