    4                    Potatoes
    1       md           Onion
    1                    Egg
    2       tb           Matzoh meal
      1/2   ts           Salt
      1/8   ts           Pepper, white
      1/4   c            Oil
   add more potatoes for additional people keeping the
   4:1 ratio. Description: Peel potatoes and place in
   cold water until ready to prepare latkes. Starting
   with onions, alternately grate some onions on large
   holes of grater and some potatoes on smallest holes.
   This will keep potato mixture from blackening.  (Or
   use food processor. The steel blade produces a smooth
   textured latke and the grating disk a crunchy one.)
   Press out as much liquid as possible and reserve
   starchy sediment at bottom of bowl. Return sediment to
   mixture, but not liquid. Blend potatoes with eggs,
   matzoh meal, salt, and white pepper. Heat 1 of oil in
   frying pan. Drop about 1 tb mixture for each latke
   into skillet and fry, turning once. When golden and
   crisp on each side, drain on paper towels. Serve with
   yogurt, sour cream, sugar, or applesauce.
