I've had many latkes in my life, those made with matzah meal, with flour, all sorts of vegetables, and they're all good but last year I decided to make mine with potato starch and OMG! They were so much better than anything I ever had so try these and remember to stock up on potato starch at Passover time as it has a very long shelf life. I don't give salt measurements as potatoes are never exact so start out by making one latke and add more salt to the next one if needed, just don't skimp on it as the salt and pepper really give it the great taste. If you choose to shred your potatoes instead of grating make sure your flame is on medium low or it won't cook thoroughly. You can also expect a lot of liquid to accumulate. Just be sure to stir everything well before frying each batch and leave the liquid behind.
