Sweet Potato Latkes and Applesauce

Sweet Potato Latkes: 

Makes 1 dozen 


  • 1 large sweet potato (Orange), grated 
  • 1 medium sweet potato (white), grated 
  • 1 medium russet potato, grated 
  • 1 1/2 scallions, chopped 
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour 
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger 
  • 1/8 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • peanut or olive oil for frying 
  • Wacky Apple Golden or Cinnamon applesauce, for serving 


In a medium bowl, combine scallions and eggs. Add flour, salt, ginger, cardamom, and pepper, and stir until combined.  Add potatoes, and toss until combined and evenly coated.
Fill a large skillet with about 1/4 inch oil. Place over medium heat until oil is almost smoking. (To test, drop a small bit of batter into the skillet; it should sizzle upon contact.)
Working in batches so as not to crowd skillet, carefully spoon about 2 tablespoons batter into oil for each latke. Lightly tamp down to flatten. Cook, turning once, until golden on each side, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spatula, transfer to a paper-towel-lined wire plate or rack to drain. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve immediately with applesauce or your other favorite toppings.
