Organic Everyday Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Ingredients

  • 2 large Russet Potatoes (about 1 pound), cleaned and cut lengthwise into quarters
  • 1 large onion (8 ounces), peeled and cut into quarters
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons coarse kosher salt (or 1 teaspoon fine sea salt), plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Kosterina Organic Everyday Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Instructions

  1. 1

    Using the most course side of a grater, grate the potatoes and onion

  2. 2

    Transfer the grater mixture to a clean dishtowel and wring out as much of the liquid as possible

  3. 3

    Quickly transfer the mixture to a large bowl. Add eggs, flour, salt, baking powder, and pepper, and mix until the flour is absorbed

  4. 4

    Pour Kosterina Organic Everyday Extra Virgin Olive Oil into a medium heavy-bottomed pan until it fills about 1/4 inch. Once the oil is hot, use a heaping tablespoon to drop the batter into the pan, cooking in batches. Use a spatula or spoon to flatten and shape the drops into discs. When the edges of the Latkes are brown and crispy, about 5 minutes, flip. Cook until the second side is deeply browned, about another 5 minutes. Transfer the latkes to a paper towel-lined plate to drain and sprinkle with salt while still warm. Repeat until the batter runs out.

    Pair with your favorite applesauce or sour cream and enjoy!
