Ingredients

Instructions
  1. Place oven racks at the upper and lower thirds positions and preheat oven to 250 F.
  2. Coarsely grate celery root into a bowl using the 1/3 inch-wide holes of a box grater.
  3. Peel potatoes and coarsely grate into a large bowl. Add lemon juice and toss. Coarsely grate onions into the same bowl.
  4. Transfer to towel, then gather the corners to form a sack. Twist tightly to wring out as much liquid as possible.
  5. Return potatoes and onions into a clean bowl and stir in celery root, flour, eggs, salt, pepper and celery seeds until well combined.
  6. Heat 1/3 inch of oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat until hot, but not smoking. Fill a ¼ cup measure (but do not tightly pack) with the latke mixture and carefully spoon into the heated skillet, then fry until the underside is a deep golden color (1 ½ to 3 minutes).
  7. Turn over using 2 spatulas and fry until deep golden on all sides (1 ½ to 3 more minutes).
  8. Transfer to paper towels to drain briefly. Keep warm in a baking dish in the oven.
  9. Repeat frying process until all latkes are cooked.
Recipe Notes

Helpful Hints:

  •  You may fry latkes 1 hour ahead of serving time.
  • You may shred the potatoes, onions and celery root in a food processer with the shredding disk.
    However use 5 eggs (instead of 4), as the machine will grate more coarsely than hand grating and will require more binding.
  •  Monitor the rate at which the latkes brown. If they brown very quickly, try reducing the heat to
    moderate.
