In the coming weeks, the “holiday season” will come into full swing. A whole slew of holidays – both religious-based and not – will begin and be celebrated. One of the more prominent holidays celebrated here in the US during this time is Hanukkah. In just four days, the Jewish holiday will kick off and begin a celebration of eight days and nights for Jewish families. And in terms of food, that almost certainly means that there will be latkes aplenty. Serve with applesauce, sour cream, or Greek yogurt.
