My Yam & Carrot Latkes with Peanut Sauce I published in 2011 are so pretty, delicious and well loved! So when Frieda’s Specialty Produce sent me some Stokes Purple Sweet Potatoes to try out, I knew I had to try them in my latkes. These were a perfect combination for Thanksgivukkah! Celebrating the traditional dish of Hannukah along with the quintessential Thanksgiving ingredient – sweet potatoes.
I love the beautiful pairing of the purple and orange together. I discovered the purple sweet potatoes were firmer than yams when they were cooking, so next time, I would add an extra egg - 4 in all to 4 cups of sweet potatoes (2 medium) and a little more flour when using the Purple Stokes Sweet Potatoes.
Pretty on the plate and a great pass around appetizer for your Thanksgivvukah celebration. Have some small plates and forks ready for your guests.
