Famous Funky Electric Latkes (P)
Recipe Ingredients:
  • 1 medium to large-sized sweet potato, scrubbed
  • 1 small white baking potato, peeled, or two red russet potatoes (preferred), scrubbed as well
  • 1 to 2 green onions
  • 1/2 cup grated apple, red (make sure the skins were still on when you grated them)
  • 1 large egg
  • whatever else on the spice rack looks good
  • Pecans, chopped (optional)
Coarsely grate all the potatoes using a cheese grater. Make the white potato slightly finer than the sweet potato.

Finely chop the green onions, using only the dark green part at the top. Remember you're using apple and sweet potatoes, so less is probably more when it comes to the onions. These are basically just for color.

Now, mix up the apple, onion, and potatoes and spread on a clean cloth. Fold the cloth up and twist it so the water comes out. (Do all of this quickly because the white potato and the apple will turn brown after about 15 minutes.)

Using a really big bowl, mix the ingredients with the egg and maybe some flour or Matzoh meal.  We chose cornmeal.   Using a big spoon, drop tablespoons  of latke batter onto a skillet of oil over medium heat. Use the back of the spoon to press lightly on the latke to flatten it. You may want to coat the spoon in flour before you do this.

Cook the latke for about 4 minutes, turn it, cook for another 2 minutes or so. This is really important because you want the latke to be soft and sweet inside but a little crunchy on the outside. When it looks as though it might be in danger of being burned, that's when you take it out.

Drain it on a paper towel and serve with apple butter and sour cream.  They're actually really good with softened cream cheese as well.
