That's it for another holiday season. Wishing you peace in the New Year!
Happy 8th Night!

Here’s how I make them. Warning: I do most of my cooking without recipes so if you’re one of those types who likes a well thought out plan for cooking then skip this for your own sanity. 🤪

Wash one large apple and four small-med potatoes (I leave skins on) and shred in food processor. You can add a squirt of lemon juice if your worried about them browning.

Mix shreds with one egg, gf flour, apx 1/3 cup. + about 1/2 tsp baking powder & large spoonful of sugar-1 Tbsp or so and some cinnamon to taste.

Fry in a hot skillet with veg oil until golden brown. Place on a cooling rack over a catch pan to allow excess oil to drop off. Place in a low oven to keep warm until ready to serve.

To serve, dust with powdered sugar and cinnamon, and top with some whipped cream. Yum!

Congregation's Hanukkah Party, no lack of food.
Sixth night burning down.
#5 with latke 🍕
Fourth Night! 🕎

Part of the fun of Hanukkah for us is eating different latkes every night. We are definitely not talking traditional here!

First Night we had smoked salmon, cream cheese and cranberry, rosehip, Crabapple chutney on our plain potato latke.

Second night we had Reuben latkes, so good. This is one of our family favorites each year.

Tonight we had Italian themed garden latkes (zucchini, onion and potatoes) with pesto and a mini beef patty. One kid didn’t like the pesto. The rest of the crew enjoyed them.

Tomorrow night I’m still unsure of. The kids want taco or pizza latkes. I’m ready for dessert apple-potato latkes with cinnamon sugar.

I guess time will tell which flavor we settle on.

Happy Hanukkah!

Happy 3rd Night!
