Sweet potato Latkes

Sweet Potato Latkes 1

In all my running around to get ready for the first night of Hanukkah, I forgot potatoes!  I moved to a new neighborhood so am having to get used to shopping at new stores…I found Hanukkah candles after a little searching…but got home and realized I only had 1 potato and several sweet potatoes..

They turned out great, here’s the recipe; Makes about 18 latkes

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and coarsely grated
  • 1 m3dium baking potato-grated
  • 1/2 of a large Spanish onion, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup sweet rice flour
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 3/4 cup organic beef fat

Sauté onions in butter until caramelized.

Stir together potatoes, onions, flour, eggs, salt, and pepper.

Heat fat in a deep 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches of 4, spoon 1/8 cup potato mixture per latke into oil and flatten to 3-inch diameter with a slotted spatula. Reduce heat to moderate and cook until golden, about 4 or 5 minutes on each side. Transfer latkes with spatula to paper towels to drain.
