For those unfamiliar with the Hanukkah treat, a latke is a "potato pancake", a food fried in oil to celebrate the burning of oil in the holiday story. It's made of potatoes and onions, primarily. Since I was away for Hanukkah, it only made sense to have a belated latke-making event once I got back home. My dad left us the recipe, and we got cooking. And then, we found the food dye...
No, latkes aren't typically colorful. But Hanukkah candles are, so hey, why not? Our masterpieces looked like this:
|I do not like green eggs and ham, but colored latkes? Well hot damn!|
|We found green, yellow, and blue food coloring.|
|So we used all three.|
|These may look like normal latkes, but they're dyed yellow! Gotcha!|
