Purple Sweet Potato Latke 11-13 IMG_8314My 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.

What a beautiful color combination!

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.

Pass around these Latkes with forks and small plates as an appetizer.
