Makes 20 medium latkes
This is a semi traditional potato latke recipe with a modern version of applesauce to go with it.
5-6 medium potatoes, washed, peeled and grated
1 medium yellow onion, grated
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped fine
2 eggs beaten
½ cup whole wheat flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
In a large mixing bowl, combine grated potatoes, onions, rosemary, flour, salt and pepper, and mix well. Heat a large heavy bottom skillet to high heat making sure there is enough oil to cover the bottom generously. Form 2 inch pancakes, drop into pan and brown on both sides until deep golden brown, usually about 2-3 minutes on each side. Take off heat and place on paper towels so excess oil can be drained.
Rosemary Apple chutney
3 medium Fuji or pink lady apples (or other hard and tart apples), chopped in small cubes
1½ cups apple cider
1 cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons fresh rosemary, chopped fine
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, chopped fine
Juice of one medium lemon
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon salt
Place all ingredients in a heavy bottom medium sauce pan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally for about 20-30 minutes or until chutney is desired consistency and apples are soft. Take off heat and discard bay leaves. Serve over hot latkes.
