Grilling the avocados adds a delicious charred flavor to the guacamole. And using a zip lock bag to blend the ingredients keeps the avocados from turning brown!
GRILLED MUSTARD POTATO SALAD

GRILLED MUSTARD POTATO SALAD

The smoky flavor of the barbecue adds incredible dimension to this twist on potato salad. Adding the dressing to the potatoes while they’re still warm allows them to absorb the flavor. (You can hold the potatoes at that point until ready to grill.) Serve the potato salad warm, for the ultimate flavor.

LEARN TO MAKE  HANUKKAH LATKES

LEARN TO MAKE HANUKKAH LATKES

Hanukkah is the Jewish festival dedicated to oil, with fried foods commemorating the miracle of the one-day supply of oil that burned for eight days after the destruction of the temple. Potato Pancakes or Latkes and doughnuts, called Sufganiyot, are the most traditional and symbolic fried foods, and they’re delicious! The best latkes are golden and crunchy on the outside, soft and tender on the inside.

The customary latke is made from a traditional russet potato, high in starch, which needs little flour to bind the mixture to create the pancakes. In the modern style, you can use any potato, like a Dutch Yellow for buttery flavor or a sweet potato for a honeyed taste. The simplest latkes are made from grated potatoes; you can grate potatoes by hand using a box grater or using your food processor (so easy!), grated onion for flavor, beaten eggs, a bit of starch (flour or matzo meal work well) and salt and pepper to taste.
