Oh my, delicious Hanukkah dishes...pull up your seat and help yourself to crispy potatoes latkes topped with applesauce and sour cream. So so so yummy!
On Hanukkah, it is traditional to make latkes and to eat foods fried in oil. The fried foods custom recalls the miracle of Hanukkah, which centered around oil (one jar lasting for eight days). Latkes (fried potato pancakes) are traditional, but there are many creative variations to the pancakes and the toppings. Other fried foods for Hanukkah include sufganiyot (jelly doughnuts) and other kinds of fritters.
