Nice recipe. I would only suggest a few things: squeeze the water out of the potatoes after shredding and use self-rising flour and add 1/4 tsp black pepper to the mixture.

I loved hearing your family history...what a wonderful photograph and legacy to her. My great grandmother arrived from Poland in about 1914 or so as well. I look forward to adding these to my latke repetoire.

THANKS so much for sharing! Love reading about your Grandmother coming to America (my Italian mother came 8yrs after her). Love reading your latkes family tradition....all year! I did not grow up with this tradition but love potato pancakes and so I posted my own.

A wonderful tribute to our grandmother who is our cooking inspiration and who is in our hearts and memories, especially when we make and taste these golden treats. For Proust is was a madeleine. For us, it is that first bite of a potato latke (pancake).
