The Best Latke Evah Recipe

8 potatoes 1 onion salt pepper flour egg
Grate 1 onion into a bowl. Peel potatoes, let soak in bowl of water to not turn brown. Grate potatoes, draining the water from the bowl. Take all the grated potatoes and rinse in a towel to drain as much water as possible. Mix grated onion and potatoes thoroughly to evenly distributed onions amongst potatoes. Add egg and a scoop or two of flour to bind the mixture and stir up. Add salt and pepper. Heat a pan covered in oil (about 1 inch on the bottom). When oil starts to bubble, with your hands make little round pancakes with the potato mixture and put in pan. Fry about 4 mins until the sides start to brown. Flip and fry 4 mins on other side until brown. On subsequent batches add more oil if needed. Serve with sour cream and apple sauce.
Applesauce 9 small apples 3/4th cup of water Cinnamon stick 2 sugar packets
Peel/core apples (save cores for yeast!). Place in pot apples, water, cinnamon, sugar. Bring mixture to a boil, then turn to simmer for 25 minutes. Remove cinnamon stick. Mash with a potato masher to get applesauce consistency.
