Potato-Apple Latkes
Makes 8 servings
Getting started Equipment you will need: peeler, grater, colander, cutting board/knife, large bowl, large skillet, spoon, spatula, serving plate Do right away when you get home: Action step 1
Ingredients
2 lb. Yukon gold potatoes (about 6 cups)

2 medium Gala or Honeycrisp apples

1 tsp. salt

1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 cup flour

1 tsp. granulated sugar

Action:

1. Peel and shred potatoes and apples. Combine ingredients in a colander. Let stand 20 minutes, pressing occasionally with the back of a spoon until barely moist.
2. Combine potato mixture, salt, and pepper in a large bowl. Add flour to mixture; toss well to coat. 1 1/2 Tbsp. canola oil

3. Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add potato mixture in 1/3-cupfuls to pan to form 4 latkes. Flatten slightly with spatula. Cook 6 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove from pan; keep warm.
4. Repeat step 3 three more times. Sprinkle latkes with sugar before serving.

Suggested Side Items: Eggs (of your choice) and a cup of fruit

Tips: Be sure to add oil to your pan each time you repeat step 3 to prevent latkes from sticking to the pan. Keep cooked latkes warm in a 200? oven if you are preparing more than one batch. Serve with low-fat sour cream for a tangy taste!
