[Editor's Note: Just thinking about latkes gets my stomach to rumble a little bit. I'm a huge fan of potatoes in their most-fried forms, and so I will go out of my way to get my hands on a latke when the season rolls around. I've never made them at home, though, because they are so labor-intensive! Well, thanks to Robin of Two Lazy Gourmets, I now know some great tricks to make the latke-making process a breeze. --Genie]
Easy Latkes for Hanukkah: Enjoy Crispy, Delicious Potato Pancakes without Missing the Party!
The main thing I remember about my childhood Hanukkahs is my mother’s latkes. And not just the latkes themselvesas delicious as they were, crispy-fried, fresh from the frying panbut also the image of my mother in the kitchen, first peeling and hand-grating (the food processor just doesn’t cut it here) piles of potatoes and then hunched over a pan of hot oil frying the little potato pancakes to a crispy golden brown. Every year she threatened not to make them, but every year, our whining and declarations of how she was the best mother/cook/latke-maker won out and, again, she’d spend an entire night toiling away in the kitchen while the rest of us enjoyed ourselves.
