Great recipe, but labor intensive with the shredding by hand. I made these for a Hanukkah gathering last night that I was invited to. They were a big hit! I didn't make the sauce, I added about 1/2 c. chopped green onion, and I fried them in regular oil. I served them with sour cream and apple sauce. Thanks!

I have never made or eaten a latke before and these were delicious. I love the little patties with or without the sauce. I did omit the gingerroot for personal tastes, but thought the recipe still worked beautifully. I look forward to making these again, thank you for sharing Chia!
