Latkes, Applesauce and Jelly Doughnuts…

I interrupt my own Chanukkah line-up of recipes to share with you this all-encompassing post by lovely Joyce that contains all traditional Chanukkah goodies – and more! Happy Chanukkah, Beautiful People!


Hanukkah begins tomorrow night. Who wouldn’t love a celebration that lasts eight days and involves lighting pretty candles, exchanging gifts, playing games that involve chocolate coins and eating foods that have been fried in oil?  Hanukkah features foods fried in oil in remembrance of the oil that miraculously burned for 8 days back in the day. The two most popular delicacies would be potato latkes and jelly doughnuts, also known as sufganiyot.  I also added a recipe for a really easy no-peel applesauce, since no latke is complete without (in my opinion).  Of course, a nice 6 braid challah is always a good idea too.  Click through for recipes and original posts.
