Our Adventures in Cooking ~ Potato Pancakes or Potato Latkes with Applesauce

A favorite hearty meal of ours is enjoying a meal of Potato Pancakes with applesauce ~ also known as Potato Latkes.  You can find many recipes online for Potato Pancakes, but this traditional version involves shredding or grating potatoes into fine slivers, squeezing the moisture out of them in a cheesecloth, and a batter that can contain flour, an egg, a shredded or diced onion, salt, pepper and green parsley.

The shredded potatoes and batter are combined together, fried in the olive or vegetable oil of your choice, rested on a paper towel to absorb the excess oil, and then kept warm in a bowl in the oven until they have all been fried.  We serve these delicious and filling treats warm for lunch or dinner with applesauce on the side for a satisfying meal ~ enjoy! ☼ 🙂
