Butter and Blue Potato Pancakes, please. I do not think that they are taken?

Hi MCT! I had volunteered to test those - and will make them either way because I really need to learn how to make latkes - but if you'd like to test them as well and write the review, you certainly can. It looks like potato and pork confit cakes are also available, if you'd like to do those. I can't test those because I definitely won't have time to make pork confit and I also can't eat walnuts. Just let me know what you plan to do.

Gosh, I was having the same issues with pork confit cakes as you. We are a no nut household due to my sons allergies. Go for the butter and blue ones. Sorry that I did not see it. You are going to love learning how to make a latke. They are just heaven to me. I do not know how they could even judge this catagory. Let's just say I have not met a potato pancake that I didn't like. Look forward to reading your review.

Thanks so much! I am quite psyched to be giving these ago. And I totally agree about how difficult it would be to judge. Of course there's always an embarrassment of incredibly delicious looking recipes every time, it's got to be hard to judge every week!

If the Potato Pancakes are still available I'll take them. I'll be frying up a batch tonight!

Wow, I just saw that my recipe was an EP... thank you so much! I'm thrilled and honored. I read your review and am glad (relieved?) you liked them. I'm particularly partial to the ease of working with such a wet mixture. :)

PS. Congratulations to the finalists and EP's. Would need a year to try all the wonderful recipes on this site, editors picks or not.

Geez, I come home from one trip and my cabbage is an EP, come home from another trip and my latkes are another. Allow me to catch up with the thank you's and if I wasn't on another trip tomorrow I would love to test something. Maybe next year. Thank you all for the wonderful reviews and comments.

I hope you do send in your comments, too. Sorry I didn't see this earlier: I would have been happy to step aside. I have submitted my comments to the editors. Hope you love this as much as I do! It is a great recipe.

I could use a little more duck fat in my diet, so I'll take the "duck fat fried latkes with apple lemon chutney."

I'd like to try the spiced sweet potato latkes please! I'm so excited - latkes are not in my repertoire, and I can't wait to learn!
