    so looking fwd to make NON-POTATO latkes. after all, there were no taters in ancient Judaea, or anywhere else in the old world. they originated in PERU. I am sure there were ample things to fry. I will try jicama, and/or chayote. that should be really great. anything fried in oil is yummo. for me the greatest Chanukah gift/blessing is that it takes place in Dec, and not in the summer.

    I was just wondering about something.......
    I make very often latkes made from ...... ZUCCHINI..... and they come out just wonderful...
    Would that be a substitute for potatoes ??
    Although zucchini latkes that I make calls for a bit of flour, you could use matzo meal instead..

    i COULD use matzoh meal, but i WON'T. instead, I would use almond flour, or coconut flour, or flaxseed. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

    OK..... as long as you have some sort of a binder, it would work.....

    When I make pancakes, I use wheat gluten as the flour... Check it out and it is really low carb...

    Also,...................... please remember that I have reached my goal by losing about 150 pounds.. I don't go crazy with carbs, but I also can go for a few options once and a while such as a bit of flour for my latkes.....

    thanks, Steve and the same to you and your family. even we eclectics enjoy it too. i regret i am not ready to do any serious cooking yet. i wanted to try making NON-POTATO latkes. of course, potatos (and tomatos) come from the new world (not FERENGHINAR). what DID the Jews fry before Columbus?
