Spicy Latkes Recipe

Mini Potato Pancakes Are a Dainty and Delicious Appetizer

Although they are traditionally associated with Hanukkah, latkes or potato pancakes, make a delicious appetizer even after the holiday. The thin, crispy shredded potatoes can act as a scrumptious base for everything from sour cream and smoked salmon to spicy apple chutney — as is the case with this recipe. When making latkes, it's important to squeeze the excess water out of the potatoes. It's a tedious job that normally ruins a kitchen towel, but it's essential to creating a cake that has a crunchy texture. These savory bites would be welcome on a spread of appetizers on New Year's Eve, so get the method now.

  5. Add the shallots, garlic, and jalapeño and sauté about 5 minutes. Stir in the apples and orange juice mixture. Let come to a low simmer.
