Tonight, at sundown, begins the celebration of the Festival of Lights - Chanukah.
This weekend I'll probably smoke a brisket and make my "famous" potato latkes, for our friends and family.
For anyone who has never made latkes there are plenty of good recipes on the web and most produce fantastic results. Serve with apple sauce, sour cream, ketchup or any/all of above. Kids and adults can't keep away from them.
Happy Chanukah to all.

    My fiance had originally volunteered to make latkes for my dad's annual Hanukkah party but backed out when she found out they were for 30+ people!

    Here's my favorite latke recipe.
    Grate peeled all purpose potatoes on a chicken wire grater if possible. Do not use a shredding blade of the food propcessor. Important to skin some knuckles doing this. Squeeze out water from grated potatoes. For each large potato add one beaten egg and one half small grated onion. Also two tablespoons of matzo meal. NOT flour, that makes it gummy. Stir it all up. Fry about 1/4 Cup for each latke, or as small as one tablespoon in vegetable or canola OIL. I use peanut oil. Not olive oil. The reason of this season if to commemorate the miracle of oil. Anything fried this week is a celebration.
    Serve with applesauce or sour cream. Really good with corned beef.

    As Jerry Seinfeld would say, "What's the deal with the different spellings?"

    I answered my own question! :) I never knew this. :blush:

    Hanukka? Chanukah? Hanaka?
    The Different Spellings of Chanukah

    There seems to be some confusion surrounding the actual spelling of Chanukah. Part of the reason for this confusion may be due to the fact there is no exact English translation of the Hebrew word for Chanukah.

    In fact we have received numerous emails requesting whether these different spellings might also be different holidays. So to help clear up some of the confusion we would like to present a number of the different spellings one might encounter.


    While in the United States it is most common to use the spelling "CHANUKAH," rest assured that they are all the same celebration.

    Mmmm... latkes. My favourite. Well any form of fried potato is cool with me.

    Happy Chanukah!
