Spice Up Your Latkes with Ginger and Sweet PotatoDecember 7, 2023
Katie Workman provides a new take on traditional Hanukkah latkes. These sweet potato latkes feature refreshing flavors of citrus and ginger, and are perfect served with either sour cream or applesauce. Play with the seasonings and explore other root vegetables like zucchini and beets. The sweet potatoes don’t need to be dried and contain less natural starch, which calls for a low heat and attention to prevent burning. After preparing, keep the latkes warm in the oven or serve them straight from the pan. It’s recommended to fry the pancakes in olive oil only if serving with meat to maintain kosher restrictions. Lastly, leftover latkes can be stored in the fridge for up to two days and reheated in the oven. The simple recipe will make about 30 pancakes.
