Delicious potato latkes for Hanukah, served on a plate with sour cream and applesauce.

Potato Latkes

5 potatoes
2 onions
3 eggs
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
Between 1/4 to 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
Oil for frying (canola is recommended)
2 tbsp lemon juice

Peel potatoes. Place in a bowl of cold water so they won’t turn brown.

When ready to prepare the latkes, drain the potatoes. Place potatoes and onions in a food processor fitted with a knife blade. Pulse until smooth. Drain mixture well.

Pour potato mixture into a large bowl. Add beaten eggs. Add salt and pepper. Add enough flour so that the mixture holds together.

Pour 1 inch of oil into a large, deep frying pan. Heat the oil over medium-high heat. Carefully drop 1/4 cup of the potato mixture into the hot oil. Flatten the pancake slightly so the center will cook. Fry for several minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through. Drain on paper towels.

Serve with applesauce or sour cream.
