Potato pancakes aren't just for Hanukkah! Since you don't need to turn on your oven, they make a great appetizer or side dish to any Summer meal. Plus, they're great when you need a break from the crunchy texture of raw carrots. Grab some fresh rosemary from your garden and whip up this variation made with shredded carrots and russet potatoes. Serve them warm with cold apricot applesauce to complement the sweetness of the soft carrots.
