Hey there, this year Chanukah lands early and takes over Thanksgiving. Who would have known. Still, while everyone is preparing one of them turkey's, you might as well master the art of your latkes.
Oh, Don't act like I need to teach you how to make Latkes. Your bubby should already have taught you that lesson. How else are you gonna land a man? You want to give your poor mother grandchildren, don't you? In any case. You take that already awesome recipe of latkes and you simply top it with some horseradish crema.
1/2 cup Mexican Crema. Go to the market with all them spanish speakers and get some.
add 2 tablespoons of freshly grated horseradish. Like you don't know where to get this?
add 1 tablespoon of rice wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt and mix it together.
If you want to spice it up some, then you take some jalapenos and you chop them up finely and put it on top of those latkes. Oh boy, you're gonna give your parents some grandchildren soon with this trick.
But hey, if you don't want to go all fancy smanchy and just want to be ol' boring betty. You can always just make your own apple sauce. Just think of the lines down at the bodega.
First you get 3 Golden delicious apples and 3 Fuji apples. Peel them, cored them, and quartered them. Set those aside as you get 1 cup of unfiltered apple juice, 2 tablespoons cognac, 2 tablespoons of butter. 3 tablespoons of honey and 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Put all that in a microwave container as well as the apples - shake it around and nuke it for 10 minutes with one side of the container just slightly open to let the steam out.
Smoosh all that together and then pour it on your latkes. Now for sure you'll bring home a good boy to your parents for your traditional Chinese food dinner on Christmas.
Oh, and here's the first of your Chanukah gifts. This little music video
Now isn't that a lot better than some erasers or pencils?
