Recipe

In the tradition of reviving the old as new, these latkes trade in the old New World tuber—the potato—for the new Old World tuber—the parsnip.

Yield: Makes 22-24 latkes

Ingredients

  • 1 pound carrots
  • 1 pound parsnips
  • 2 eggs
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Vegetable oil for frying
  • Creme fraiche

Directions

Grate the carrots and parsnips on a box grater or in a food processor. Put in a dish towel and squeeze to remove water.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, flour, salt, and ginger. Stir in the grated vegetables. Drizzle with the honey and stir to combine.

Pour oil to depth of 1/8 inch in a large skillet and heat over medium heat.

Drop the vegetable mixture by serving-spoonfuls (about 3 tablespoons) into 3½-inch discs.

Fry until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Drain on paper towels.

Serve with dollops of crème fraîche on top.
