The Barefoot Contessa Ina Garten is stopped by the TODAY kitchen last year to share a few of her go-to recipes for Hanukkah. She showed us how to make incredibly easy potato latkes and homemade applesauce.
You can find all kinds of variations out there, but this traditional potato latke recipe is straight forward, iconic and delicious. It is also featured in the children's book "Goodnight Bubbala."
This applesauce is far better than anything you could find in a store. It features all the classic flavors you'd expect, like cinnamon and brown sugar, but it also has a zesty brightness thanks to fresh oranges and lemon.
