Karl’s Tarragon Potato Latkes with Fresh Pear Sauce

Eilene has been asking for latkes lately. She has a friend coming over for dinner, so this seems like a good day to make them. Always trying new things, I decided to use tarragon and replace the usual apple sauce and sour cream with pear sauce and crème fraiche.

Karl’s Sweet Potato Latkes with Apple Sauce

I have always struggled with making latkes. I am forced to limit the amount of oil that I cook with because of Jan’s dietary restrictions. As a result, fried foods are not a common occurrence in my household. Without enough oil in the pan to half-deep fry the potatoes the centers of the latkes never quite get cooked before the outsides are nearing burnt. Thank you cooking shows!  I noticed that professional cooks sometimes “finish off” pan-fried dishes to avoid this problem. Ten minutes in a 350° oven insured that they were cooked and did not destroy the crispness of the latkes.
