A Hanukah Favorite - Latkes!

Fried food is traditionally eaten on Hanukkah in commemoration of the oil that miraculously burned for eight days when the Maccabees purified and rededicated the holy Temple in Jerusalem. Fried Potato Pancakes (called Latkes in Yiddish) are the hands-down, mouth-open holiday favorite. Here’s a healthier version made from sweet potatoes.
