Recipe: Potato Latkes for Hanukkah from Zabar’s

Everyone has a favorite potato latke recipe for Hanukkah. Here’s one from Zabar’s, supplied by a grandma, of course. A couple of modern-day shortcuts that Bubbie might not have approved of—the potatoes aren’t peeled and they’re grated in a food processor.
