Hanukkah Recipe: Potato Latke | Mrs. G Appliance Chef

Potato latkes are shredded potato pancakes often associated with Hanukkah.  It’s tradition to eat fried food because of the significance of oil at during the holiday. As history states, around 2,000 years ago, the Jews were able to reclaim the Jewish temple from a tyrant king who was forcing them to worship Greek gods. To rededicate the temple, they needed oil to burn the menorah. There was only enough oil to burn for one day, yet miraculously it burned for 8 days. The 8-day celebration was declared to honor the miracle of the oil. 

Potato latkes are a fairly simple to prepare and leave room open for variations in the form of zucchini or carrot latkes.  Try the recipe, which was prepared on a Jenn-Air induction cooktop, below.

The Same Turkey Cooked in 3 Different Ovens

At Thanksgiving time, most people cook a turkey. That’s pretty standard. But what isn’t standard is the brand of oven in everyone’s home. That’s why I used a weekend leading up to the holiday to test out the same 7 LB turkey breast, seasoned the same way and at the same time, in 3 different ovens in the showroom: the Viking Turbo Chef, the GE Profile Series 30 in. Combination Double Wall Oven with Convection and Advantium® Technology, and the Jenn-Air® 27″ Built-In Microwave Oven with Speed-Cook.
