Hanukkah Recipes: Latkes, Applesauce, and Doughnuts

Tradition dictates that Hanukkah is celebrated with fried foods, a commemoration of the miraculous oil that provided the victorious Maccabees with eight days of light. Get out the frying pan for classic potato latkes or fritters made from brown rice or zucchini; punch up your applesauce with a little horseradish. Fried dough—whether Nutmeg Doughnuts or funnel cake—guarantees a sweet finish.
