 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2      pounds        potatoes
    2      large         eggs
                         Salt
                         Oil for frying
 
 
 Peel and finely grate the potatoes. Put them straight into cold 
 water, then
 drain and squeeze them as dry as you can by pressing them with your 
 hands
 in a colander. This is to remove the starchy liquid, which could make 
 the
 latkes soggy.
 
 Beat the eggs lightly with salt, add to the potatoes, and stir well. 
 Film
 the bottom of a frying pan with oil and heat. Take serving-spoonfuls, 
 or as
 much as 1/4 cup, of the mixture, and drop into the hot oil. Flatten a
 little, and lower the heat so that the fritters cook through evenly. 
 When
 one side is brown, turn over and brown the other. Lift out and serve 
 very
 hot.
 
 Yield: 6 serving
