It’s Fry Time for Chanukah!
I’m looking for the first night of Chanukah, beginning at sundown tonight when we’ll:
- Light the first candle of the menorah (Hanukkiah) with the shamash (while in reality a candle, the shamash doesn’t count as one of the eight candles — their only purpose is for viewing).
- Recite the Chanukah blessings and sing songs.
- Eat fried potato pancakes (latkes), and sufganiyot (donuts).
- Play dreidel and eat chocolate gelt (potentially Twix this year as I haven’t been to a store that sells gelt yet).
In honor of this fun time of year, I wanted to share Tasty Touring guest blogger and Whole Foods Market employee Betsy Becker’s post about her favorite Chanukah recipes. Click on the picture to read:
Betsy wrote about Chanukah for Whole Foods last year and I did too. However you plan to celebrate the eight nights of this wonderful holiday, whether by enjoying donuts from Mrs. Johnson’s, fried potatoes from McDonald’s, or golden brown delights from your own kitchen, all of us from Tasty Touring want to wish you a very Happy Chanukah, y’all!Betsy, Chanukah, latkes
