10 Fabulous πŸ‘πŸΌ Foods πŸͺ🍞 for Hanukkah ...

You don’t have to be Jewish to enjoy the foods of Hanukkah.

Jewish food rarely gets put in the spotlight but Hanukkah is the perfect time to try out some new recipes.

I’m listing some of the most important, traditional and standard foods for Hanukkah and hope you will give some a try during the eight days of this significant Jewish holiday which this year falls 12/24/16 - 01/01/17.

1. Latkes

There is a custom of eating foods at Hanukkah that have been fried or baked in oil (preferably olive oil) to commemorate the miracle of a small flask of oil keeping the flame that was in the temple alight for eight days.

Latkes – potato pancakes are one of the mainstay foods for Hanukkah.

Follow this recipe and learn the basics and once you’ve got the hang of it, search out other variations.

You might use other vegetables like zucchini and spinach if you want to have latkes in spirit but more healthy than the traditional.

Or how about a mix of potatoes and parsnips?
