A Reason to Eat a Holiday Classic Year-Round
News flash: Latkes aren't just for Hanukkah. And if you've never made potato pancakes, this is an excellent (if untraditional) recipe. The latkes are baked, not fried, so you get that satisfying crunch but none of the mess—or the, you know, extra calories. This recipe, from Florence Fabricant's City Harvest, includes an apple puree that has hints of rosemary and ginger; it's a play on the applesauce that usually accompanies latkes, and is just sweet enough.
