If you don't have the book, here is the recipe.
Chanukah is the Jewish Festival of Lights and it remembers the rededication of the second Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, in Israel. The story tells us that when they went to light the menorah there was only a small bit of oil, and the miracle of light lasted for eight days.
As with most holidays, there are food traditions, at Chanukah it is delicious foods that are deep fried.
A tried, tested and perfected recipe comes from the iconic book, Second Helpings Please. Ask anyone who has this book, it is page 99 and your book probably has oil stains on it just like mine.
There may be a debate - shred or puree. Our preference is shred, and using a food processor with your shredding blade is the fastest way to get a lot of potatoes done efficiently.
NOTE: This recipe yields about two dozen. It is not uncommon to double or triple this for a family celebration.
