Giti's Potato Latkes Recipe

Giti's Potato Latkes Recipe
Staff Writer



This family recipe was given to me by my boyfriend's mother who received it from a book club friend who, in turn, got it from her friend's longtime family recipe. It came with little notes about personal preferences, and I'm sure it's changed along the way, but I figured it had to be good if it kept getting passed on — and it is. Community recipes like this one are the ones that we treasure here at The Daily Meal, and we're pretty sure you will, too.

Shred the potatoes in a food processor and mix all of the ingredients except for the oil in a large mixing bowl.

Heat a large pan with 1 inch of canola oil over high heat. (Add more if needed.) Working in batches, drop spoonfuls of the latke mixture into the hot oil, until crisp and brown on one side, about 2-3 minutes, then flip and repeat on the other side. Place the cooked latkes on several layers of paper towels on a cookie sheet or pan to drain. (Be patient as it takes about 2 hours to fry 50 latkes.) Cook the remaining latkes in the same fashion, adding more oil as needed.**
