    the debate is over, however, all the votes haven’t been counted yet. don’t forget we need to check the absentee ballots.

    This Moderator is voting for: Hamantashen

    42, editor – what’s your vote?

    Apparently just voting for “latke” is not enough, as you may be referring to zucchini or cheese latkes (yum!).

    The rules said “Only votes for either the *Potato* Latke or the Hamantaschen will be posted”. Threfore, it looks like hamantashen are leading twenty to zero.

    #933052

    no i think he means 42 and editor, not 42 is the editor

    to be clear, I am asking both the YW Editor and the moderator known as YW Moderator-42 what there votes are.

    btw if we ask the same question in two and a half months from now, whoever said latkes would say hamantaschen and vice versa. i think it’s a seasonal thing.

    Round 3 is open and voting has been closed.

    the vote is:

    the final tally is

    Latkes: 10

    Hamantaschen: 5

    Potato Latkes: 2

    now, curiously, Curious (who voted for latkes) pointed out that “Apparently just voting for “latke” is not enough, as you may be referring to zucchini or cheese latkes (yum!). The rules said “Only votes for either the *Potato* Latke or the Hamantaschen will be posted”. Therefore, it looks like hamantashen are leading twenty to zero.”

    If we exclude all the commentary and look only at the votes that followed the rules, Hamantaschen win and if we are lenient and go with intent kind of like the “hanging chads” for all those in Florida, Latkes win.

    The options that remain open now is to either go to the Supreme Court for a ruling or to accept the historical research dating back to 1946 and the original debate, and just call it a tie.

    wishing all a Freilichen Chanukah!

    Well since I’m the one who challenged this isssue, I shoud defintiely get to decide. After all, you wouldn’t want to elect a winner and then have me challenge it. It would be kind of embarassing to the winner-elect to be dethroned.

    well you can’t judge if you’ve got any predispositions. you’re way too biased so you’re dethroned from this issue.

    Help! I need a latke recipe that is healthy for a diabetic, low glycemic index, and low-calorie, as well. I heard that cauliflower latkes are good, but I don’t have a recipe.

    I’m sorry but I have to disagree I like sugar better than oil

    Hamentashen are much better. If you are going to fry a potato don’t shred it, either shred it and bake it (kugel) or make it into fries.

    oomis, I never tried these but they look ok at first glance. Whole wheat matzah meal or bread crumbs should be ok. I would imagine you can do a similar thing with zucchini, sweet potato etc. You could also do cottage cheese with eggs, oil and a sweetner. Wait, did you just say latke and low calorie in the same sentence?!

    Eggplant Latkes (pareve)

    Contributed by Eileen Goltz.

    image

    2 large eggplants, each about 1-1/2 pounds

    2 tbsp. vegetable oil

    1 large onion, chopped

    3 eggs, lightly beaten

    1/2 cup matzo meal

    1-1/2 tsp. salt, or to taste

    ground pepper to taste

    Vegetable oil for frying

    Instructions:

    Preheat the broiler. Prick the eggplants all over with a fork and broil them until their skin is charred and they are soft inside, about 25 minutes, turning them once. While the eggplants are broiling, heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring often, until soft and lightly colored. Remove from heat and set aside. Remove eggplants from the broiler and let cool. When cool, cut the eggplants in half lengthwise and peel the skin away from the pulp. Discard the seeds, skin, and stem and place the pulp in a medium bowl. Chop it finely. Place the eggplant and onion in a large bowl. Add the eggs, matzo meal, salt and pepper and stir to combine. (If necessary, add more matzo meal to create a batter that holds together.) Preheat the oven to 200. Lightly oil a large nonstick skillet or griddle over medium heat. Drop a heaping tablespoon of the eggplant batter onto the hot skillet or griddle, making a pancake about 3 inches in diameter. Fry until golden brown on both sides (about 3 minutes per side) and then place on a baking sheet in the oven. Repeat until all of the eggplant batter has been used, re-oiling the fry surface as necessary to keep the latkes from sticking.

    Serve warm with sour cream on the side.

    if you’re voting for hamantaschen, you just haven’t had good latkes. when you’ve had good latkes you will know that there is no comparison. a hamantasch is just a cookie, a latke is wow!

    Hamentaschen. Why do people enjoy eating a potato (starch) which has been fried in oil (fat). Even if you forget about the health aspect, hamentaschen are still waaaaaayyy better.

    Not to go OT, but does anyone have a good cauliflower latke recipe (preferably even one that can be baked)?

    oomis, if it’s baked cauliflower, it’s not a latke.

    Latkes!!!!!! Although this past chanukah, I only got to eat one latke… 🙁

    How about we vote for Latkes, Hamentashen, Matzah, Charoses, Apples and honey, Pomegranites, and challah? Whats your favorite?

    I am obsessed with my second cousins charoses.

    Latkes: They are yummy, and served hot. Also you can have more than one if you eat them for a meal.

    You can eat latkes on Pesach. You can’t eat hamantashen on Pesach even though you now have 5 million hamentashen that you have to throw out because of early Pesach cleaning. Therefore, latkes are superior.

    Because it sure beats eating fat that was fried in fat!
