Posted December 01, 2017  | Written by PJOW Parent

How do you feel about potato latkes? We like them a-latke! (That was pretty good, right?) Whether you’re a traditionalist and like eating your latkes with applesauce or sour cream or are looking to up your latke-making game, we’ve got a whole LOTTA latke knowledge to share. So, crank up your favorite Hanukkah tunes and let's get cooking!

WHY DO WE EAT LATKES?

In the Hanukkah story one tiny jar of oil keeps the lamps burning for eight full nights. Since Hanukkah celebrates this miracle, it's traditional to eat foods fried in oil as part of the festivities.

THE TRADITIONAL

Traditionally, latkes are topped with sour cream or applesauce. You can enjoy your latkes this way or you can get creative with one of our suggestions or one of your own.
