Potato Pancakes

Potato Pancakes, or Latkes

Oil for frying

4 cups grated potatoes (I never peel them. I scrub them clean using a plastic kitchen scrubber I keep just for this purpose. Steel pads with no soap added also work well)

1 onion, diced small

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

2 tablespoons flour

2 eggs

pepper to taste

Scrub and grate the potatoes, put them in a sieve and press down, squeezing out the liquid (do this for better hash browns, too).

Combine in a medium bowl with onion, salt, flour, and pepper. Lightly beat the eggs, and stir them into the mix.

Heat the oil in a skillet. Quickly drop in a spoonful of the potato mixture and flatten it with the back of the spoon, making a pancake patty. Brown on one side, flip with pancake turner and brown lightly on the other.

This makes about two dozen. SErve with applesauce, pork, sour cream, or ketchup. Or eat them plain.
