- 4 whole green apples, cut into eighths
- 2 1/2 cups Apple NESTLÉ® JUICY JUICE® 100% Juice
- 6 red potatoes, peeled and grated
- 1 onion, peeled and grated
- 1 large egg
- 10 tablespoons corn oil, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup sour cream
SIMMER apples (not peeled, cored or seeded) in Juicy Juice for 30 minutes or until very soft. Drain, reserving the liquid. Push apple through sieve and discard peel and seeds. Simmer liquid to reduce by half and stir into applesauce.
COMBINE potato and onion in large mixer bowl. Beat egg with 2 tablespoons oil and salt; combine with potato mixture.
POUR enough remaining oil into a large skillet to cover bottom with about 1/16 inch of oil. Heat to very hot but not smoking, and drop potato mixture in by heaping tablespoons. Flatten immediately so pancakes are about 4 inches in diameter (smaller pancakes will burn). Try to keep them neatly round. Fry for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden brown; flip and brown other side. Drain on paper towels. Serve with applesauce and sour cream.
Review This Recipe
Simple and Excellent!
I've had latkes (potato pancakes) all over the place and these are by far the best I have had. I didn't prepare the applesauce but instead just served them with sour cream and French toast. They are especially easy to prepare if you have a food processor, sure beats grating a bunch of potatoes and an onion (which had me crying for a good 5 minutes).
