Apple-Cranberry “Sauce”

3 cups fresh cranberries
2 large apples; peeled, cored and chopped into small chunks
1 ½ cups sugar
¾ cup water
¾ cup apples juice

• Rinse the cranberries and remove stems.

• In a saucepan, bring sugar, water and apple juice to a boil.

• Add berries and diced apples. Boil, stirring continuously, for 10 minutes.

• Serve warm, or cover and refrigerate until chilled (about 3 hours).

Measure ingredients, rinse cranberries, and dice apples with a small plastic knife.

Potato Latkes


5 large potatoes, peeled and grated
1 onion, peeled and grated
5 eggs
1 tsp. salt
Dash pepper
Canola oil for frying

• Mix together grated potatoes and onions

• Add eggs, salt and pepper. Mix with a wooden spoon.

• Pour enough oil into a frying pan to just barely cover the bottom. Carefully place large spoonfuls of latke batter into the pan.

• On a medium flame, fry latkes for about 5 minutes on each side, until they are brown.

• Place them on a paper towel to cool, and to absorb excess oil.

• Serve warm, with applesauce.

Peel and grate potatoes and onions, crack the eggs, mix the batter, and place batter on the pan.
