  1. Sgt Mom: exactly right.

    Salt the potatoes after they are grated. Let them sit for a few minutes.

    Put them in a cloth and squeeze out the liquid.

    Let the liquid settle and pour off the water. The white stuff at the bottom is potato starch. Put the potato starch in the mix.

  2. Gosh! I am adding this to latke recipes started by Uncle Tony Wysocki – the finest Merchant Marine that eveh sailed!

  3. Roz: Yes, you can use cheesecloth. But, I use an old non fuzzy kitchen towel. The potato juice washes right out.

  4. If you do not wash the grated potatoes thoroughly you will get Lithuanian style potato pancakes. I used to hate the ones my ex made.

    After I found out the massive difference washing out the sludge made I make light crispy latkes quite often.

  5. I just made a batch for which I salted the grated potatoes and let them drain in a colander. Then I rinsed them, squeezed them dry and mixed them with onion and egg. I fried them using a few teaspoons of cooking oil rather than olive oil spray. This was the best batch so far.
