  • Happy holidays to you and yours! I was hoping for a food vid from you - Maybe not technically slow cooking but we're gonna try that for sure!

    Buuuuuuut.. You spell it "Hanukah" in the description and then "Chanukah" in the tags and I've seen about 5-6 other ways of spelling it. That's it, I'm never gonna try to spell it.


    Cheers! /V

  • If I can make a recommendation- try some Panko bread crumbs(most are Kosher) and 1/2 of the flour. They turn out crispier. Also, buy a Kitchenaid mixer/shredder. They are around $200, but you won't have to use a grater, and saves you 1/2 the time.
    Do you put sour cream and applesauce on them? Tasty! Happy Chanukah, from Wash, DC area

    • @anaislynne Hiya - all the best to you and yours. I will try your suggestion on the bread crumbs - hey maybe even crushed corn flakes. As for the mixer/shredder, I have a large food processor that could do the whole job, but for me it is more "hamish" to grate them and mix them by hand. Applesauce and sour cream? Standard fixings.

      Cheers!

    • @Muslim_Soldier You're an idiot. Although I am Jewish, I was adopted from a non-Jewish family. So - do I still look like a Jew? What does a Jew look like?

      Uncle Fester is not Jewish, he's a dead guy in a movie. I guess "the Addams Family trilogy" passed your muzie ass over in your country, as all you do is watch "allah Snackbar death to everyone movies"

  • I'd eat so much of these tasty treats I'd get sick. My mom would always tell our Jewish neighbors not to let me eat too many Latkes.Of course, if there's anything Jewish moms don't believe in is not eating enough...so that never worked. I was the red headed Catholic boy who looked pregnant after eating twenty of those.Only thing I did not like were those damn Matza crackers, they looked exactly like Saltines with a horrible stale like taste. Liverwurst was always good though. Serious good times. More..

    • @Fire37Rescue Heheh. I had many non-Jewish friends pig out on these things conjured up by my mom. Actually out of the three guys doing the candle ceremony in the vid, one was Jewish(me), one was Mohawk(my brother-in-law) and the other Protestant(my daughter's boyfriend). And none of us like those damn crackers.

      Family, friends, ya - that's good times.

      Cheers!

    • @Poosti Malaka
      All the Jewish ladies loved me because I could say all the prayers in Hebrew...They'd just go crazy over the little catholic boy who could speak a little hebrew and yiddish...My Jewish buddies would get so pissed because I'd walk out of there with 20-30 bucks shoved in my pockets.Had an old Jewish guy on my block say, Keep that up, you'll get a tree in Israel!"
      lol
      Good times

  • Loved it. Happy hollidays to you too.
    Great to see the different SECULAR cultures celebrating and sharing.
    No offense, Poosti, just saying. Not wanna troll this to another direction or something. I'd never expect cut off hands and stoned women from a civilized religious custom like that. And this just makes the difference.

    Cheers, brother.

  • Yum! Substitute corn meal for potatoes and you'd have something pretty close to hush puppies.

    Happy Hanukah!

  • Poosti.....you need to squeeze the water out of the potato first....and add an egg as well as the flour.

    Nice vid

    Nice to see all those Chanukah candles!

    Happy Chanukah brother.
    Oops...it just finished.

  • my folks make that, but they use zuchinni with onions, when i'm trying to lean out i'll use sweet potato's instead, but then i top it with pepperoni, taco sauce and cheddar cheese, so it's never healthy

    • @golem Heh - I am not even sure that sweet potatoes are any less fattening. Fortunately, I am at the same weight as I was in high school and can eat anything I pretty much want.

      Cheeers!

    • @golem - we add zucchini sometimes too and sweet potatoes are nice, but burn easily at a lower temperature of oil, so you have to watch them carefully.

  • Those look good, Poosti. I fav'd this because I want to work with that recipe. I'm already visualizing swapping the flour for pancake mix. Happy holidays, buddy.

  • Cool grub. My missus would like this video, especially the peeling potatoes segment. She'd actually see someone do it, instead of thinking potatoes come auto-peeled! >:)

  • Same ingredients with a little tweaking and you have German/Polish potato pancakes.

      Yeah, really no difference from what I could tell.Growing up in Pittsburgh, there were a lot of Poles and Slovaks who made them. As I remember, The Poles,Slovaks and Hunkies put garlic in them.Eastern European food is almost identical to Jewish food. Amish and Mennonite food is almost identical to Jewish cooking too.

  • It's hard to believe your wife is Jewish if you got her to peel the potatoes. :-)

  • We call those potato cakes here.
    Left over mashed potatoes (instead of your grated), onion, flour, salt, pepper, cook them up.

  • Amein (to the blessing over the candle lighting ceremony) and thanks!

    BTW, my Hebrew could stand much improvement, but one thing I can share is that in the the word קִדְשָנוּ (commanded us) in the blessing, the dalet (i.e. "d") has a dot in it and the shva mark under it is the type that acts as a short vowel, so the result is the word is pronounced something like, "kid-deh-SHAnu" rather than "kid-SHAnu". This is true for several common words in the regula More..
