Apple-Cornmeal Latkes (D/P TNT)
Source: L.A. Times Food Section- Judy Zeidler November 25, 1994
Serves: 4 (3-4 latkes each)

2 large apples, peeled, cored and grated
juice 1/2 lemon
2 eggs
2 tablespoon sugar
dash salt
1/4 cup matzo meal
1/4 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup yellow cornmeal
oil for frying
sour cream, optional
cranberry sauce, optional

In large bowl combine apples, lemon juice, eggs, sugar, salt, matzo meal, almonds and cornmeal. Mix well.

In large heavy skillet, heat 1/4" oil over medium heat.

Spoon apple-cornmeal mixture by tablespoons into hot oil and fry on both sides until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with sour cream and cranberry sauce.

Judy Zeidler: "The intensity of flavor of these latkes will vary with the variety of apple used - the sweeter, the better. Cornmeal adds a special crunch."
