Tarragon and Red & Orange Beet Latkes

INGREDIENTS

6 cups beets, coarsely shredded (about 6 medium)
6 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon ground coriander
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
3 large eggs, beaten to blend
Canola oil (for frying)

PREPARATION

Place beets in large bowl. Press with paper towels to absorb any moisture. In another large bowl, whisk the flour and the next five ingredients. Mix in beets, then eggs. Pour enough oil into large skillet to cover bottom; heat over medium heat. Working in batches, drop beet mixture by 1/4 cupfuls into skillet. Spread to 3 1/2-inch rounds. Fry until golden, usually about 5 minutes per side. Transfer latkes to baking sheet. (Can be made 6 hours ahead. Let stand at room temperature. Re-warm in 350°F oven until crisp, about 10 minutes.) Serve latkes with relish and salsa.
