Before you light up, speak up!
On the first night, we add:
- Baruch Atoh Ado-noy Elo-heinu Melech HaOlam Asher Kiddishanu B'mitzvosav Vitzivanu L'hadlik Ner Chanukah
- Baruch Atoh Ado-noy Elo-heinu Melech HaOlam Sheh-Asa Nissim L'Avoseinu Biyamim Haheim Bizman Hazeh
- Baruch Atoh Ado-noy Elo-heinu Melech HaOlam Sh'hechiyanu, V'kiymanu, V'higiyanu Li'zman Hazeh
On Chanukah, we eat potato latkes fried in oil to recall the Menorah's oil that burned for 8 days. After eating 43 latkes, Rabbi Riddle's tummy burns for 8 days too! Anyhow, here's my favorite latke recipe.
5 large potatoes, peeled
1 large onion
1/2 cup flour
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
3/4 cup of cooking oil (Not motor oil!--Rabbi Riddle)
Step 1. Grate potatoes and onion on the fine side of the grater (or put in a food processor or blender with a little water.)
Step 2. Strain batter through a colander to get rid of excess water. Add eggs, flour and seasoning and mix well.
Step 3. Heat 1/2 cup of oil in a 10 inch skillet, lower the flame and add one tablespoon of batter into the skillet for each latke. Fry for about 5 minutes, then turn latke over and fry the other side for 2-3 minutes.
Step 4. Remove latkes from pan when golden brown and place on paper towel to absorb excess oil (or else you'll end up looking like a latke!). Continue adding batter and oil to make more latkes.
Step 5. Ess Gezunt. That's Yiddish for "enjoy!"
Rabbi Riddle's Kwazy Kwestions:
- What did the Chanukah candle say to the match?
- You light up my life!
