In preparing Hanukkah holiday foods, oil’s the operative word—fried in oil, that is. “Traditionally, we do that with latkes, which are potato pancakes that are often smothered in apple sauce and sour cream,” Rachel Gross of the Jewish Outreach Institute tells Joins Us at the Table hosts Robbie Bell and Nancy Ancrum. “There are as many ways to make latkes as there are to look Jewish—and Jews are found in every corner of the world. You can make latkes from plantains, zuccini, sweet potatoes. And sometimes they look more like something you’d find in an Indian restaurant than in your own neighborhood, but they’re still a traditional Hanukkah food for many people.  Just like jelly donuts, which are fried and crispy and filled with a sweet center. So you’ve got the miracle of frying something, and also the miracle of getting to the center of it and finding a wonderful raspberry or strawberry jam.”
