    Alan Leonetti's Note:

    There are different versions of Potato Latkes, but this is the recipe my maternal grandmother, Anna Buhal'tsev (Bell) Mersky, used to make. She made this in the Ukraine, where she came from, and she may have even slightly changed the recipe when she relocated to the United States in 1910. SEE MY RECIPE #85235 FOR SCHMALTZ.
