4 EarthFresh Russet Potatoes
3 Tbsp (45 ml) all purpose flour
1 tsp. (5 ml) salt
Vegetable oil for frying
Optional: Sour cream or apple sauce for dipping
Wash and peel the potatoes. Grate the potatoes and shallots into a bowl, and transfer to a cheesecloth. Twist into a pouch – squeezing all the excess water out. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk the two eggs. Carefully add the the two whisked eggs, flour and salt to the potato bowl. Mix until all ingredients are well in incorporated.
Add ¼-inch of vegetable oil to a pan over medium heat. Scoop up roughly a golf ball size of the potato mixture while squeezing and flattening at the same time, making a latke shape. Drop 3-4 latkes at a time into the pan and cook 3-4 minutes per side. Latkes should be golden brown and crisp on both sides.
Remove and place on a paper towel to remove excess oil. Serve latkes on their own, or with sour cream or apple sauce.
Makes 10-12 Latkes
