The Cultural Dish


German potato pancakes are a real treat and something Germans miss when they move away. Eating freshly made potato pancakes with applesauce in the out-of-doors at a weekly market or carneval is a wonderful way to do indulge,


German potato pancakes are a real treat and something Germans miss when they move away. Eating freshly made potato pancakes with applesauce in the out-of-doors at a weekly market or carneval is a wonderful way to do indulge,

Ingredients:
  • -3 russet potatoes (roughly 2 - 2.5lbs)
  • -1 large onion
  • -3 eggs, beaten
  • -1 teaspoon salt
  • -Optional: 1/3 cup flour or potato starch 
  • -Canola oil 
  • -Applesauce 


Directions:
  1. Peel and grate the potatoes and onion and place in a strainer since they will be very watery.  Let them sit for about 10 minutes. You could also ring them out in a paper towel if you are in a rush.  It is okay if they are still watery.  I have skipped this step all together a couple of times when I was in a real rush. 
  2. Transfer the potato and onion mixture to a bowl and mix in the salt and eggs.  If using the flour, mix that in too. Set aside.
