Yukon Gold potatoes make excellent latkes. They have a lovely yellow color and buttery flavor that other potatoes simply don't possess, and consequently make an excellent latke or potato pancake. Garnet sweet potatoes and Japanese yams also make wonderful (although very different) versions of the same recipe. No need to be Jewish (or be celebrating Hanukkah) to enjoy these crisp and savory treats. They make great party food, brunch side dishes, appetizers and accompaniments for entrees. Both Yukon Gold Potato Latkes and Sweet Potato Latkes are well worth the effort of making them. And there is nothing like homemade Natural Applesauce to accompany them.
