The Great Latke Debate: Applesauce vs Sour Cream
For many American Jews, Hanukkah is synonymous with latke season. Pillowy on the inside and perfectly crisp on the outside, these potato pancakes are delicious just about however you serve them.
But like any Jewish matter, a contentious debate takes place every year over what the best way to top them is. Traditionally, either sour cream or applesauce have been the main choices, although many get creative with the condiments — and some among us succomb to the subtle allure of ketchup.
What do you think? Are you team applesauce, team sour cream or team something else entirely?
It’s latke season. What’s going on yours? ? ?
